    JD Rossouw
    Head Winemaker, Wildeberg
    Leader of our South African winemaking team, it's fair to say JD was born to be a winemaker. Growing up helping on the family winery in Paarl instilled the winemaking principles he practices to this day. Having completed the first harvest at Wildeberg earlier this month there's never been a more exciting time at Boutinot South Africa.
