Newton Johnson Vineyards is owned and managed by the Newton Johnson family.
We are based near the seaside town of Hermanus, an hour and a half's drive
out of Cape Town. This is a popular tourist destination, famous for some of
the most spectacular land-based whale watching in the world and also known
for its bracing champagne air, lush indigenous fynbos (literally fine
bush, a plant kingdom exclusive to the Cape), mountain walks and bike trails.
Dave, a Cape Wine Master, has over 30 years experience in the South African
wine industry. He is ably assisted by his equally wine- and food-focused wife,
Felicity (nee Newton). Then there are the two brothers, Bevan and Gordon who are
both dedicated to the family concern. Gordon is the winemaker and crafts the
wines to translate the message of the soils into the wine. He is assisted by
his newly-wed wife, Nadia who is very actively involved in the winemaking as
well as the logistics of the company.
Bevan is the managing director and in charge of the marketing. His creative
wife Ezanne is a freelance graphic artist with experience in the wine industry,
and she adds flair to the promotional material (like this website). Come harvest
time, you'll find our whole family working together in the cellar.
