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.
