Nederburg cellarmaster since 2001, Razvan Macici was born in Romania and raised in a family of winemakers. He holds a masters degree in viticulture and oenology from the University of IASI-Romania. After graduating as a winemaker, he gained wider experience in Western Europe before moving to South Africa in 1997.
Under his leadership, Nederburg has accelerated its award-winning reputation, all the while vinifying just under 20 000 tons of grapes a year. He has proved equally adept at making red, white and dessert wines for which Nederburg had become especially well-known under Günter Brözel. Macici has also been responsible for considerable innovation.
