Johnnie Calitz Winemaker @ Glen Carlou
Johnnie’s devotion to his craft is not only highlighted by trophies, medals and awards, but more so by the sheer delight he exudes when a smile is raised as he sees his wines being enjoyed.
Johnnie has an experience rich background from which to draw on. His consumer and market insights round off an accomplished gentleman who we are thrilled to call Cellarmaster. He is equally comfortable talking with international buyers as he is with our diverse South African consumer base.
The interlinked frame of support within the winery is reflected by the way in which Johnnie and his team collaborate. He is ably assisted by Philip Theron, whose recognition as a recent Diners Club Young Winemaker finalist, reflects the mentorship extended by Johnnie. He guides his team, as he does the wines, to being the best they can be.
