Jacques du Plessis completed his studies at Stellenbosch University and set to work straight away. Having worked in the Swartland and the Breedekloof with mostly red Rhone varieties, it was the chance to make cooler climate wines in a historic setting that drew him here.
“I’m honoured to be working in the oldest wine region in South Africa. Heritage and regional identity is something I respect and both of these are important in Constantia. Uitsig has a long history of great wines, and I’m thrilled to be part of what is to come.”
