Marras Wines

A taste of the jackal's searching soul.  A wild creature that operates night and day. Gregarious. A jaunty critter. He has an active mind. Remarkably resourceful. Adaptable. With his nose to the ground, he explores new territories with a bold and agile survival strategy. Meet Martin Lamprecht, alias Master Marras. 

Mentored by David Nieuwoudt, they now run together, determined to make a mark amidst weathered vines in the harsh soil of the Swartland and Piekenierskloof regions.
