Our Winemaker – Andries Jordaan

Winemaker Andries Jordaan

I try to keep the process as simple as possible by doing the basics right for as we all know; a great wine is made in the vineyard.

Andries Jordaan

The Jordaans’ proud tradition of handing down the art of winemaking from father to son still lives on today with current winemaker Andries Jordaan and his cousins, Wagner and Flippie, the third generation at Theuniskraal.

Andries’s love for winemaking grew from an early age roaming the vineyards and the cellar on the farm. After majoring in oenology and viticulture at the Stellenbosch University, Andries honed his skills at Simi Winery in California and Wagner his in Australia, before joining the rest of the family at Theuniskraal. Over the years he has gradually taken over the responsibilities in the cellar from his uncle, Kobus.

“My first priority is to make top-quality wine,” says Andries, “but on a broader scale, I would also like to help bring about a change in the wine-drinking culture among South Africans by encouraging people to drink moderately every day while enjoying your wine with food.” To this end, Theuniskraal wines are well priced but represent consistently good quality. By putting a great emphasis on gentle handling and minimum manipulation, Andries does everything he possibly can to preserve the precious flavours and enhance the natural quality of the grapes.

“I think it is important that your style of winemaking fits the demand of your potential market and if it proves successful, to make sure that you maintain the quality and style,”

Theuniskraal wines are designed to be enjoyed, with a wide variety of delicious food dishes and at all sorts of occasions.

Date of birth: 2 September 1966
Marital status: Married
Tertiary studies: Degree in oenology and viticulture from Stellenbosch University
Work experience: Andries honed his skills at Simi Winery in California, USA, before taking over the winemaking reigns at Theuniskraal where he has been for the past 30 years.
