Pieter Taljaard

Pieter’s father worked on the mines and as a result he grew up on and around the mines of Stilfontein and Klerksdorp. Having a strong aptitude for numbers he obtained various qualifications in the financial sciences and ended up spending most of his working life associated with mining – mostly gold mining.

Pieter was blessed with three strong-willed daughters, Corné, Anelise and Sonje and in time he also welcomed their husbands Nico, Marius and Sean into the family.

After retiring Pieter purchased the farm Kersfontein knowing that it has the potential to produce phenomenal wines… wines that Pieter would be proud to put his name on.
