Born and raised in the Cape Winelands, Wener Wessels brings a wealth of expertise and hands-on experience to his job as Fable Mountain Vineyards’ Farm Manager – and he loves every minute of his job.
Werner mastered his role from the bottom up, having started his career in cellar maintenance before becoming Farm Manager at nearby Fraaigelegen Farm, with specific responsibility for running the vineyard.
With a proven talent for leading and motivating his team, Werner is now applying his skills to further enhancing Fable Mountain Vineyards’ rising reputation. “I really enjoy working outdoors,” he comments. “There is nothing more fulfilling than watching small beginnings grow into a flourishing and productive asset. At Fable Mountain Vineyards, it is easy to see how much Mother Nature gives back when she is treated with love and respect.”
Out of hours, Werner indulges his passion for building classic hot rods and muscle cars or jumps on a mountain bike whenever he needs to refresh his mind and recharge his batteries.
