About usFifth-generation Malan winemaker Danie joined Allesverloren to hone his skills under the watchful eye of his father Fanie after graduating from Elsenburg Institute for Agricultural Training in 1987. In 1990, Danie went on to become the winemaker, and took the reins of owner from his father in 2003. Danie's red wines are his pride and joy, and he humbly attributes their success to the unique terroir of the Swartland wine region.
"I'm an avid believer in terroir. As a winemaker I think this a unique way of setting your wine apart from the rest. I make full-bodied, robust and huge red wines that keep well. My way of doing this is to keep it simple and straightforward. I am a farmer who makes wine and not a winemaker who farms."
