Our winemaker, Daniel Keulder is the unsung hero of our vineyards. Taking grapes and turning it into award-winning local and international wines. Daniel is a creative mind, that takes inspiration from the terroir, the wild critters living among our vines and the balance in the soil. Daniel prides himself on being part of a team and not the celebrity that does it all on his own. We love this about our winemaker and we believe in his instinct to keep Nitida beautiful and handmade with attitude.
Danie joined the team as our winemaker in December 2014. Coming from 5 years of making wine at Groot Constantia, he brings with him a great love and understanding of working with cool climate grapes. It’s a given that he will continue to make stunning wines with us and perhaps his experience in making craft beer becomes part of our future Nitida culture!
