Joshua takes over the reins at Manley and gets straight to work

  • Young and ambitious Joshua Van Blommestein took over as Manley’s Head Winemaker after working at some of the top vineyards in South Africa. He brings with him bundles of energy and enthusiasm and a keen attention to detail that will make sure those Manley wines continue to hit all the right notes.
  • Joshua has a soft spot for red wines, especially Shiraz, which he describes as ‘truly elegant’ and ‘a wine we can have a lot of fun with during the winemaking process’ so keep your eyes peeled for some true South Africa belters. 
  • During his studies he travelled over to France where he worked in Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Rhone, picking up many tips that he can’t wait to put into practice. He’s passionate, meticulous and we can’t wait to see what he brings to Manley.
