We are pleased to introduce our new, Junior Winemaker, Callan Willams. Callan is a graduate from Elsenberg agricultural college in Stellenbosch and is passionate about winemaking.
Born in Zimbabwe, Callan attended Roedean School in Johannesburg, and spent many years as a ballet / contemporary dancer until winemaking called. Before joining Elgin Ridge, Callan spent a season at Iona, as an Assistant winemaker, and a spell at Villiera
Callan says ” I’m looking forward to making my mark within the wine industry and working with Elgin Ridge and their organic wines and vineyards. The future at Elgin Ridge is an wonderful and exciting opportunity for me”
When Callan is not making wine, she enjoys listening to Bruce Springstein and eating out, trying top restaurants, and their food/wine pairings.
Sounds like Callan will fit in with our love of good food and fine wines
