A Little Bit About Me

Posted by on September 5, 2011

Jacoline Haasbroek alias My Wyn. Some people forget my name but remember me as “ the woman from My Wyn”. My Wyn started in 2001 when I decided to round off my Wine Diploma II, presented at the time by the Cape Wine Academy, by buying a ton of grapes and making my own wine rather than by doing their Wine Master course. Wanted to see whether what I had learnt on paper also worked in practice. Thanks to some excellent grapes, Shiraz from La Motte, Franschhoek and the help of many knowledgeable friends, my first effort was a success, delivering a sought-after wine and the inspiration to continue. Today, nine years later, I am still making Shiraz from the same La Motte grapes. I have now also branched out to other cultivars and am a member of the Franschhoek Vignerons, where I am recognised as their smallest cellar.
