Patrick Ngamane • Winemaker

Hailing from the Eastern Cape, the Ngamane’s move during primary school to the Backsberg Wine Estate was the fateful moment determining the young Patrick’s future. On the farm, he worked with grapes from the vineyard to cellar that sparked an interest and saw him finishing his studies at Elsenburg Agricultural College.

Patrick Ngamane has been working alongside Cellar Master Carl Schultz for the past 11 years as winemaker, and particularly enjoys Hartenberg’s renowned Riesling with spicy thai food.
