It was an ideal setting of dinner, wine and conversations with the Cellar Master of one of the finest wines from South Africa. Ms. Andrea Freeborough delightfully took the guests through the history of the brand, the process of making wines, their best seller wines and much more.
Guests included the first woman MW from India – Sonal Holland, Rojita Tiwari – Owner of Drinks & Destinations, a one stop place for all your BevNews, Shatbhi Basu – the First Woman Bartender, Celebrity Chefs – Rakhee Vaswani and Anjali Pathak.
With an honours degree in viticulture, followed by another honours in winemaking, Andrea began working as an assistant winemaker at Neethlingshof in Stellenbosch. Less than three years later she was appointed a fully-fledged winemaker, working under Nederburg cellar- master Razvan Macici, producing the whites. In her very early 30s, she was appointed to head Distell’s Die Bergkelder, a job she held for a decade before returning to Nederburg to take over from Razvan in mid-2015.
