MARRAS

Marras Wines, as South African as braaibroodjies and big open skies, is the project of Martin Lamprecht who is happiest among the tough bushvines of the Swartland and Piekenierskloof regions. A taste of the jackal’s searching soul, he channels this rugged terrain with his unpretentious winemaking style into a bottle, showcasing his sincere appreciation of the land he stalks.

Son of the soil Martin ‘Marras’ Lamprecht was born Capetonian and raised in the small town of Dundee in KwaZulu-Natal. He blames his close-knit family for his love of life and all the beautiful and delicious things in it. It was this joy of sharing experiences that sent Marras down the winemaking path; he graduated from Elsenburg Agricultural Training Institute with a Cum Laude in B.Agric Cellar Technology in 2010, the academic equivalent of All Gold Tomato Sauce.
