Meet our Founder

Niël Groenewald

I’m a winemaker, international wine marketer and wine business specialist, with eight years of academic training and 25 years of hard work under my belt.

Applying a blend of lived experience, critical thinking and constant interrogation of myself and my environment, I have become adept at anticipating challenges and opportunities and effective at problem-solving. I spent 14 years at DGB-owned Bellingham. As head winemaker, I changed the approach to winemaking and wine styling to see the brand grow in critical acclaim domestically and in export markets.

Head-hunted for a similar role within the Distell Group in 2017, I was shortly thereafter appointed MD of the company’s flagship Nederburg Winery. During my tenure until mid-2022, Nederburg was able to consolidate, focus and grow its presence locally and internationally. It was thrice ranked as one of the top 50 of the Drinks International World’s Most Admired Wine Brands.

I am dedicated to creating innovative solutions that drive growth and ensure the future success of the wine business in a rapid evolving market landscape.
