Our Cellar Master Wim Truter

Originally from Strand outside Cape Town, Wim's fascination with the vine and its secrets motivated him to enrol for oenology studies at South Africa's premier winemaking university, the University of Stellenbosch. Wanting to explore even more, Wim travelled extensively: Australia, USA and France.

For two years, Wim worked across various borders to obtain the secrets of winemaking in a particular region. Invigorated by his knowledge, Wim returned to South Africa, only to be drawn back to Europe as one of the few selected to complete a master's program in Viticulture and Oenology (M.Sc Vintage) in Angers. During this time, Wim travelled from France to Italy and Spain, which further engraved him with the nuances of skilled winemaking.

With a dream to apply this knowledge at a producer which shared his vision of making remarkable wine with a global reach, Wim joined KWV and its Cathedral Cellar, where his love for wine is evident in the portfolio of fine wines he makes there.
