Zevenwacht Estate: Meet The Team
The ones that make the difference!
Denise Johnson concentrates her efforts on building relationships with their international partners, developing the local and international sales as well as directing the marketing and brand development. Her legal background is also rather handy when dealing with the vast array of trading, operational and property development contracts.
Frank Johnson makes use of his sharp mathematical abilities to administer the finances of all the Johnson-owned properties, which extend beyond the farms.
Tracey Evans employs her sales and customer relations expertise to manage the ever popular wine tasting centre, direct sales and trade marketing. She was instrumental in creating the varied offering at the wine tasting centre and uses these skills to broaden Zevenwacht’s presence in the trade.
John Johnson played an integral role during the development of the Bottelary Conservancy, and combined his love of nature with his keen photographic eye to create the beautiful catalogue of the all the floral gems that make up the Renosterveld family.
Hagen Viljoen, Cellar Master, is a talented and passionate winemaker with over 12 years’ experience gained in both new- and old-world wine regions internationally and here at home. Hagen has a vast knowledge of different terroirs, having previously worked with fruit sourced from several regions which, in the process developed his love of Rhône varietals.
