Bartho Eksteen follows in the footsteps of Hermanus Pieters
“I’m proud of what we’ve achieved as a cellar and in my personal capacity – I'll treasure these as eight great career years," says Eksteen.
In his own fashion and style Eksteen follows in early 1800’s footsteps of Hermanus Pieters by giving back to the industry for which has developed a great passion.
“We take our hats off to Bartho and his family for their commitment to further winemaking as an art and profession as well as broaden wine awareness and knowledge in the youth market," says Johan Pretorius of Hermanuspietersfontein. “We wish Bartho and the Academy the best of success and the prosperity becoming of a good idea."
The appointment of a new era winemaker is in progress and an announcement to be announced in due course.
