Ronald Du Preez
Upon graduation from University of Stellenbosch in South Africa in 2000, Ronald Du Preez moved to California in August to complete a three month harvest internship at Jordan. He quickly became an integral part of the winemaking team and accepted a full-time position. Promoted to assistant winemaker in 2003, he now works alongside Winemaker Rob Davis and Assistant Winemaker Maggie Kruse to guide Jordan wines from vine to bottle.
A native of South Africa, Du Preez was born into a family of engineers in 1977. His father served as a soil scientist at Elsenburg College of Agriculture in Stellenbosch, while his mother was a town planner. Wine was always an integral part of the Du Preez family’s dining experiences, which shaped his decision to study the science and artistry of winemaking.
