In chatting with Andre and Bruwer about their ethical commitments, wines, and careers, I discovered two passionate individuals, neither of whom dreamt of a career in wine, but who both love their country of South Africa, their neighbors, and their role in bettering the community through wine and philanthropy. Bruwer put it well when he said, “I did not choose winemaking…. winemaking chose me. Once I got exposure in the wine industry, I followed my heart in doing something that I am very passionate about.”
