Annalie grew up in the Cape and studied viticulture and oenology at Stellenbosch University.
After graduating in 2008, she worked under Mike Dobrovic at Mulderbosch Vineyards and gained valuable knowledge about the production of quality white wine.
Her attention turned to the production of premium red wines when she joined 4G Wines in the Helderberg area. As part of this small venture, Annalie was able to be very hands-on in the vineyards.
Annalie also brings with her some impressive international experience, having worked with Andy Erickson of Screaming Eagle fame in Napa, California, where she gained experience with Cabernet Sauvignon.
She also spent some time in France’s Loire Valley, living la belle vie and drinking in the old-world charm while working with Sauvignon blanc, Chenin and Gamay.
