Carl Schultz • Cellarmaster
Carl graduated as Dux student in 1988 from Elsenburg. He joined Hartenberg Estate as Winemaker in 1994. The Estate first came to prominence in the late 1970s under the "Montagne" label, producing top-end Shiraz. Today the property produces three highly regarded examples of this grape.
In 1996 Carl was appointed as a Director of the Estate and invited that year to join the Cape Winemakers Guild. Carl has also previously served as CWG Chairman.
Over the past twenty years at Hartenberg, Carl has worked and travelled widely in Australia, France, Italy, Portugal, the United States and Germany, with the aim of expanding his frame of reference and technical knowledge. Today, as Cellarmaster he oversees both viticultural and winemaking production at the Estate.
