SPEAKERS PROFILE - MARELISE NIEMANN


In January2007 I started as winemaker at Beaumont Wines in Bot River, which I called my home for the inspiring 8 years that I worked there.  During these years(2007 – 2014) I did some extensive travelling and learning abroad by doing internships in Burgundy (France), Priorat (Spain), Douro (Portugal) and Rhone (France).

2011 marked the beginning of my own project, Momento Wines, which I nurtured for a few years before going solo at the end of 2014.  With Momento Wines, I am currently based at Gabrielskloof in Bot River, where I craft, make and manage my wines.
