Johan Joubert, cellarmaster for the past twelve years, is moving onto new pastures with the warm thanks of the team for his contribution to the Kleine Zalze journey so far. Owner and MD Kobus Basson says “We are very grateful for Johan’s hard work and dedication to Kleine Zalze over the years. He has done a wonderful job for us and he remains a welcome friend and will always be an integral part of the history of Kleine Zalze. We wish him all the success in the world with his future ventures.”
Kobus goes on to say “We are excited about the next chapter in Kleine Zalze’s history and after careful consideration we are pleased to announce the addition of Alastair to the established Kleine Zalze team. Alastair has worked extensively in the international market and brings with him a wealth of experience having worked in both big commercial wineries as well as super premium boutique producers in South Africa and abroad.” New cellarmaster, Alastair, takes up his duties in September 2014 and is looking forward to bringing his international experience to complement the dynamic winemaking team, currently lead by RJ Botha.
