Announcement of a change at Warwick

Dear Warwick wine club members, clients and colleagues,

I hope that you are all well. I would like to bring to your attention some changes at Warwick.

Warwick winemaker Jozua Joubert will be leaving Warwick due to a sad and sudden death in his family. We share in his grief and wish him well. Jozua has been and remains an outstanding winemaker and contributed enormously to Warwick. He will be missed by the entire team.

Louis Nel has been appointed as consultant winemaker effective immediately and will oversee preparations for harvest and the harvest itself through April/May 2011. As long-time former winemaker at Warwick, Louis has a deep interest and knowledge in our vineyards, winemaking style and winemaking philosophy and has already slotted in like an old friend. Louis has indeed got outside responsibilities with his own wines, but has made a full commitment to ‘deliver the goods’ at Warwick.

Warwick is currently interviewing extensively both domestically and abroad for a new full time winemaker to commence in the position after harvest 2011. We have identified a number of strong candidates and are quietly taking our time to make sure that we identify the ideal candidate to take Warwick into the future.

Wishing you all the best for a great holiday season.


Mike Ratcliffe

Managing Director
