Chris Williams, winemaker at Meerlust Estate in Stellenbosch since 2004, has resigned to pursue his own interests. He was only the second winemaker at the property, succeeding the renowned Giorgio Dalla Cia.
Williams remains at Meerlust until the end of December to oversee the bottling of the 2018 wines but after that will be focusing on his own label, The Foundry as well as other winemaking projects. The Foundry will be based at co-owner James Reid’s historic farm in the Paardeberg,the existing winery soon to be upgraded.
