Angels are helping Johan to keep winemaking in the family…
Winemaker Johan Kruger is a big beast of a bloke. He plays rugby and eats three cow pies every morning. But when it comes to family, he’s like a big floppy bunny rabbit. They mean the world to him.
Three years ago, Johan had just left his job at an award-winning South African winery to follow his dream of making his own wine. His wife Sofie was pregnant, and they had no idea what the future held.
Back then things were tough. He was struggling to get off the ground. Life on the road selling his wine took him away from the main loves of his life – his family and his vineyard. It was a complete waste of his time and talent.
When we heard of Johan’s pickle, we signed him up, gave our 200,000 UK Angel customers access to his wines, and boom! It was love at first sight (on both sides). Finally he had the backing and the market he needed, unleashing him to make some of the finest wines in Stellenbosch.
With the backing of Angel funding he’s able to invest even more time and love in the vineyard – to nurture and improve the quality of his delicious fruit year-on-year. 3 years, 3 children and 3 scoops of Angel funding later, his mouth-watering creations just keep getting better and better.
