After graduating from Stellenbosch University with a BSc and BSc Honours in Wine Biotechnology in 1998, Erika Obermeyer began her winemaking career at Kleine Zalze in Stellenbosch in 1999. While completing harvest tenures in Sancerre, St. Emilion and Beziers, France, she gained an appreciation for the balance and elegance of the wines of these regions. In 2005 she accepted a position as winemaker at Graham Beck and in 2016 took a leap of faith and established her own brand - Erika Obermeyer Wines. Erika states that her aspiration is to create wines that skillfully convey South Africa’s unique vineyard sites and extraordinary diversity - to capture a sense of provenance, whilst respectfully reflecting the intrinsic character of the fruit. By sourcing and selecting special vineyard sites across the Western Cape winelands, and pairing them with the most suitable varieties, she has produced wines that embody the very best of these distinctive and diverse regions.
