Jandré Human, manager and winemaker at South Cape Vineyards, is Klein Karoo wine grape producers’ new voice on the Vinpro board.
His election to the board of directors was confirmed during the wine industry body’s virtual annual general meeting (AGM) on 11 November 2020. He succeeds Niël Joubert from the farm Warmwater near Montagu. Niël was re-elected on a rotational basis after seven years on the Vinpro board, but did not stand for re-election as director for the region.
Jandré has been in charge of South Cape Vineyards since 2013. Before that he was associated with Overhex – during which he served on SA Wine Industry Information and Systems’ (SAWIS) technical committee on behalf of the Worcester region – as well as Brandvlei and Windmeul cellars.
“Jandré is an asset to the Vinpro board. Moreover, he has a good perspective on the operational side of wine grape cultivation, production and marketing of the market-ready product. We look forward to working with him to help rebuild the South African wine industry,” says Vinpro chairperson Anton Smuts.
Vinpro represents more than 2 500 South African wine grape producers, cellars and wine-related businesses. The company also provides strategic direction, renders specialised services and drives people development. – Press release, Vinpro
