Winemaker Morné Vrey began his career as assistant wine maker at Hazendal Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, a position which he held for five years. Thereafter he enjoyed harvesting stints in France and Germany. To gain further experience in new world wine styles he worked in New Zealand. Today, Morné uses this experience to create a portfolio of wines in the new world style with a clear focus on freshness and balance for the Delaire Graff wine portfolio. Morné focuses on creating wine from only superior fruit and takes keen interest in the manner in which his grapes are harvested to ensure the freshness of the berries translates all the way through to the bottle. He embraced the challenge of creating expressive wines from the unique Delaire terroir as well as from fruit that is meticulously sourced from selected vineyard pockets in various regions. Morne is a respected and accomplished winemaker whose ability to create wines of consistency sets the Delaire Graff wine portfolio amongst the best in South Africa.
