Razvan 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.
He has been working at Nederburg cellarmaster since 2001 and 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.
