Heinrich Adams-Witbooi has joined our tasting room team as Senior Wine Advisor. Having initially been in the dairy industry, he had not been interested in wine until he met his wife, Allison Samantha Adams, in 2010. Allison, former winemaker at Thandi and Kumkani, ignited his passion and he soon switched careers.
After several stints at various wine estates including Blaauwklippen and Babylonstoren, and even a spell as manager of a liquor store, he was excited to join Delheim to further his journey into the world of wine.
The Chardonnay Sur Lie is his favourite; unusual in that he usually dislikes wooded Chardonnays but finds that the Sur Lie is enhanced rather than overwhelmed by the light oaking it undergoes.
Heinrich intends to put all of his new-found passion for wine into doing Delheim justice in offering the best possible service in promoting its wines.
Come and meet Heinrich in our “Downstairs” tasting cellar, and take the opportunity to browse through our shop, which has been newly stocked for Christmas. We have some interesting new items, and we still sell our ever-popular “Ageing to Perfection” and “Aged to Perfection” t-shirts.
Join us for a guided cellar tour for a glimpse at the magic of winemaking every day, Monday to Sunday, at 10h30 and 14h30.
We look forward to welcoming you to Delheim soon.
