WINEMAKER

Conrad Vlok, winemaker since 2004, is a true man of the soil whose warm temperament and empathetic relationship with the environment is reflected in the nature of his wines. Being Strandveld Vineyards first winemaker, Conrad has a close affinity to the terroir, vineyards and naturally, the cellar.

As a specialist in Sauvignon blanc and Semillon with further focus on Shiraz, Grenache and Pinot noir, Conrad’s philosophy centres on the idea that in order to make great wine you need to start with equally great grapes. When he is not working in the vineyards or slaving away in the cellar blending art and science, you can be sure to find him trekking in the veld or braving the wild Atlantic off Cape Agulhas in his sea kayak.
