As a respected and accomplished South African winemaker, Morné Vrey is relentless in his pursuit of quality. His expert hand and knowledge of viniculture is responsible for the creation of our finest appellations. Morné has been at the helm of the Estate’s winemaking team since its inception in 2008, and we are hugely proud to have his skills translate across our wine portfolio for over a decade.
Morné Vrey began his career as assistant winemaker in Stellenbosch before joining harvests in France and Germany. He then widened his experience into new world wine styles in New Zealand. Today, as a member of the invitation only Cape Winemakers Guild, he continues to harness his experience in the creation of elegant South African wines from the unique Delaire Graff terroir and from fruit meticulously sourced from selected vineyards.
Morné has a bold, but honest winemaking vision: to keep the integrity of the superlative grapes without over manipulation. They come bursting with a flavour so pure that we only use authentic winemaking methods – and that means capturing the essence of the earth and our South African summers in every grape, bottle, and glass.
