List of products by manufacturer Hermit on the Hill

Pieter de Waal, owner and winemaker of Hermit on the Hill Wines, is described by the Platter Guide as “stubborn as an ox and ornery as an ostrich – and he only makes wine when he has the time and inspiration.”

After dabbling in the dark arts of economics and attaining an MBA at the University of Stellenbosch, he started pursuing his career in wine.  It all started with running a wine shop, Vinotage, in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, after which he had the opportunity to assist Mark Savage MW in his wine import, export and distribution business in the United Kingdom.  At the same time he completed the Advanced Certificate at the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) in London.  After this he returned to South Africa to head up Paarl Vintners, followed by a stint of marketing the Durbanville Wine Valley.
