Elmarie Botes

White Winemaker

As our White Winemaker, Elmarie Botes enjoys worthwhile challenges, nature that sustains us all and a really good wine; it’s no wonder she fell in love with the idea of winemaking while on a cellar tour as a young student.

Born, raised and educated in the Cape Winelands, Elmarie admires the strong female figures in the wine industry who forged a path and place for women winemakers just like her. Under the tutelage of cellar-master Andrea Freeborough, Elmarie is motivated and driven on elevating Nederburg’s immense standard in winemaking to new heights.

As a winemaker, Elmarie sees her job as guiding the grapes to their full individual potential. “There’s nothing more exciting than seeing the first grapes come into the cellar for a new vintage of wine to be made. The anticipation is palpable. And seeing a wine evolve from soil to bottle is just incredible!’’
