Johan Reyneke is South Africa’s leading biodynamic grower, cultivating the grapes that make his wonderful wines so distinctive. Listen to us chat about the weathered granite soils of the Polkadraai Hills, what he’s learned from his herd of cows, his love of surfing and philosophy, his belief in team work, and why, as he puts it, there can be no “greatness without goodness”.
To read more about Johan, have a look at the Reyneke Wines website. You can also follow the winery on Instagram @reynekewines and Johan himself on Twitter @ZAVineHugger.
