Marras



Martin "Marras" Lamprecht, a fully fledged winemaking enthusiast, remembers growing up in Dundee in Kwazulu-Natal, in what he calls a "wine-minded family".  He kicked off his studies at Stellenbosch University in Mechanical Engineering, but soon realised that he would much rather prefer a course that supports his "wine drinking lifestyle".  After pouring his thoughts and a few glases of wine, he realised that oenology was the only answer.

David Nieuwoudt of Cederberg Cellars subsequently mentored Martin with various techniques “from vineyard to bottle”.  Being a quick learner, Martin rapidly became successful as a winemaker with his own personal touch.  Appreciating various styles of winemaking, Martin decided that he needed a bit of French flair to broaden his knowledge and embarked on a journey to experience French winemaking at its best. “They taught me how to produce wine that correctly showcase the history of the vineyard and its people.”

Martin’s French experience was particularly beneficial as it involved working with varietals (cultivars), which grow particularly well in the Swartland and Piekenierskloof areas, where the Marras grapes grow lusciously.

"All I really do is take the grapes by their hands and guide them to where they want to be."
