Second Year Protégé

Terry-Ann Klink

I come from Zoar, a small missionary town in the Karoo where being a winemaker does not feature on the Top Ten list of things females in my culture dream of becoming. It was at university where I discovered my passion for the field of winemaking which served as the driving force for where I am in my career at this point in my life. 

I have spent my first year doing my internship with Johan Malan at Simonsig. For my second year, I moved to the beautiful De Grendel wine estate, working alongside Charles Hopkins. In our second year as a Protégé, we travel to France to do a harvest and study tour, which is where I am now, and will be until the beginning of October.

My dream for the future is to have my own small winery with which I could empower other women in our industry and world. I aspire to inspire and would also like to plough back into my small community in Zoar.
