A virtuoso in the vineyard who's making a difference in her SA community
Cerina van Niekerk has two passions in life - music and winemaking - and for over 20 years she’s been making exquisite wines to show off the best of her South African homeland.
For Cerina, the most special part of winemaking is the diversity. Each wine is a unique expression of where it was made and her role is to make it sing in the glass. She picks the best Saffer grapes packed with natural flavour and guides them from vine to bottle, her gentle, magic touch brings it all together.
She almost became a full-time musician, but growing up in the heart of South Africa’s wine country, the call of the vineyard was too strong. Through blending her two passions, the Cecilia Foundation was born, providing music teachers for disadvantaged kids in her Citrusdal community.
