Meet Our Winemakers

Abraham De Villiers

Abraham's main task is to procure and blend the best possible wines for Stellenbosch Vineyards ranges, including big commercial sellers Arniston Bay and Versus. He's also involved in the barrel selection for the Credo and Stellenbosch Vineyards ranges.

He completed his Hons BSc in Oenology at the University of Stellenbosch and joined the company in 2004.

Abraham is also no stranger to accolades with a Best in Class at the International Wine and Spirits Awards for some of the earlier vintages of the Arniston Bay Chenin Blanc Chardonnay, proving that with careful winemaking, one can achieve excellence in a commercial brand.

"Every wine starts in the vineyards already with the selection of specific blocks. Each wine is tasted and blended so many times to get the right style that I lose count. Wine is as much a science as it is passion and trusting your instinct and your tasting capabilities."

Bernard Claassen

Bernard is responsible for primary production in the Welmoed cellar and oversees the whole winemaking process, from grape intake to bottle-ready wine. He completed his first harvest on Welmoed in 2000 while still a winemaking student at the University of Stellenbosch and joined the company in 2004. Some of his successes include the double gold Veritas stunner, the Credo Chenin Blanc 2010 and the limited release The Flagship Petit Verdot 2010.

His winemaking goal?

"Obviously one wants recognition for the quality of one's work and the way for this is probably to win a few accolades along the way. But honestly I just like to make great wines that always over-deliver and that can be enjoyed by everyone."
