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 (née 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.
