Maker Johan Meyer A beloved character nicknamed Stompy by everyone because of his petite and friendly personality. A wonderful producer who creates a fascinating and delicate wine that is unimaginable from its appearance. Diploma in oenology and agronomy from Elsenberg College. After that, he studied the basics of winemaking, especially Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, in California's Napa Valley, Central Coast, and New Zealand.
