For Johan de Villiers – Spier’s Wine Procurement Manager – a passion for wine was almost inevitable. His passion for all things vinous sprouted in his childhood when, growing up on a grape farm on the banks of the Orange River, he would often visit the local wine cellar with his father. This Stellenbosch University graduate worked at three cooperative wineries before joining the Spier winemaking team in 2002.
