Dirk grew up and studied in Port Elizabeth, the friendly and windy coastal city. He traded the beach life for Durbanville, where he completed his SAICA articles at SDK Chartered Accountants. One of his clients was Vrede en Lust, so when he took the opportunity to work there as Financial Manager, he slotted in easily.
While always enjoying a good wine, it was only at Vrede en Lust that he learned the true passion of winemaking and drinking. Working in the company of industry leading winemakers is enlightening to say the least.
Dirk joined the Vrede en Lust team in May 2011 and brings his own flavour to managing the finances. The incredibly scenic environment will never escape his attention.
