Nederburg is one of South Africa's most awarded wineries, with a prize-winning pedigree, that stems from a culture of innovation and disciplined attention to detail. The wines are refreshing and richly fruited with bold flavours and structure. Their hallmark combination of contemporary, vibrant flavour and classical structure blends the best of both worlds - the New and the Old. Andrea Freeborough was appointed Nederburg cellar-master in 2015 to succeed Razvan Macici, under whom she worked for five years, at an earlier stage of her career. She brings a wealth of experience and a formidable prize-winnning track record of her own. She is supported by two winemakers, who work closely under her direction. They are Samuel Viljoen, who produces the red wines, and Natasha Boks, who makes the whites.
