New winemaker to start at Oldenburg Vineyards

Oldenburg Vineyards has appointed Nic van Aarde as its winemaker, effective from 1 November.

Current general manager and winemaker Philip Costandius will step down from his role, though he will continue to provide consultation services to Oldenburg.

Adrian Vanderspuy, proprietor of Oldenburg Vineyards, says: “It has been a pleasure working with Philip and I look forward to our continued collaboration in the future.”

Van Aarde holds a bachelor of science degree in Agriculture (oenology and viticulture) as well as a bachelor of commerce degree, both from Stellenbosch University.

He quickly gained a reputation as one of South Africa’s leading winemakers, working at various leading wineries in Stellenbosch.

He also spent time working in Australia, New Zealand, USA, France and India.

Van Aarde’s passion is exploring the intricacies of the vineyard, viticulture and winemaking techniques, and their potential for making super premium wines by combining these major variables together.

Oldenburg Vineyards is in the final stages of completing its new state-of-the-art cellar and winemaking facilities, which will be commissioned by Van Aarde for the 2019 harvest.

Vanderspuy says: “It is an exciting time for the entire team, and the introduction of Nic into our new winery creates a tipping point for our business”.

Oldenburg Vineyards is situated in the Banhoek Valley – an off-the-beaten-track wine experience destination between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

The vineyards are encircled by three mountain ranges, Groot Drakenstein, Jonkershoek and Simonsberg, which create a majestic natural amphitheatre.

A confluence of eight natural elements creates exceptional wines from this extraordinary terroir.
