OUR FARM

OUR PEOPLE

Commercial Director and Owner

Kobus has been involved since the first vine was planted on the farm. The idea of Waverley Hills started when he read an article on organic wine production in France in 1997. Wine farming has been in his blood since childhood – he was taken from the milk bottle straight to the wine bottle! He believes in living a balanced and healthy lifestyle which includes indulging sometimes. He loves seafood, tripe(!) and his little weekend house at the beach.

Winemaker

Johan, nicknamed China, is our family-man winemaker. He always wanted to be a winemaker, and has been working in the SA wine industry since 1994. Johan takes things as they come his way and describes himself as a thinker and a doer. He also loves cheese which is a perfect match with wine!

Marketing Manager

Jason joined Waverley Hills on April Fool’s Day in 2008, after being in corporate finance and marketing for over 10 years in Johannesburg. In the office he is determined, direct and sometimes, he admits, impatient. On the weekends you will find Jay out and about enjoying a meal and a few glasses of wine with friends or family. He can’t live without his ridgeback, Baxter, and his Swiss bank account of course!

Johan Greeff
Farm Manager

Johan is the newest Waverley Hills staff member to join the team in May 2012. His name is popular at Waverley Hills and our holding company, with a total of 5 Johan's employed in both businesses. He previously worked at Vesuvio Estates in Paarl looking after their olive production. He studied and received his Diploma in Agriculture at Elsenburg and also took home the nickname ‘Bakkies’ from Elsenburg. Johan is quiet by nature, hardworking and is passionate about farming wine grapes. He enjoys the outdoors – fishing, diving and camping; and watching sport like rugby and cricket. His motto in life is to ‘Live your dreams!’.

 

Tasting Room Assistant

Charlene used to work in vineyards before joining Waverley Hills in June 2008. She works magic behind the scenes, keeping the cellar shiny and clean and is a pro at packing wine orders. She likes to chill on the weekends and enjoys watching rugby – Chester Williams is her all time favourite player. She describes herself as sweet, honest and caring which she is beyond doubt.

Marketing Co-ordinator

Tammy worked in London for four years after completing her Bcomm Marketing Degree in Stellenbosch. She joined the Waverley Hills team in April 2009 and has dreamed of being a rock star since she was very young – maybe she will be the next Platteland Pop Idol! She enjoys watching sport with her husband, especially SA rugby and 20/20 cricket. She loves her pets and couldn’t live without them, her friends and family. She loves all sweet treats and life motto is, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."
