Nederburg's red wine maker, Samuel Viljoen, is one of the brightest additions to the Nederburg team. Now working directly under the watchful eye of cellar master, Andrea Freeborough, he is a winemaker of the highest calibre.
Samuel studied viticulture and oenology at the University of Stellenbosch, before working at small and large wine farms all over the world. One of a select few South African winemakers to be given the opportunity to work at Domaine Serene, his international experience is abundantly clear in the Fairtrade-accredited wine he produces.
With the confidence of Andrea Freeborough behind him, Viljoen’s talents continue to mature and contribute to the Nederburg legacy, as we continue to introduce South African wine into markets around the world.
