Guy McDonald - Brand Ambassador
All good Bios contain the word Passion, right? With a passion for communication, Guy has been a broadcaster on Commercial Radio across the Western Cape for the past 21 years whilst pursuing a passion for Wine. He started a Vlog called Via The Grapevine which has afforded him the opportunity to discover the vineyards of South Africa, the grapes they reward us with and the masters who create wine from them. His interest in wine inspired him to further his learning with a WSET Level 2 Award and he has been a Blaauwklippen Blending Awards judge for the last 6 years which has contributed to this learning. He has hosted several wine events and is an enthusiastic, outgoing individual with a considerable social media presence and a medium to large sized network.
His interest in Whisky can probably be traced back to the forefathers of his surname. Being of Scottish descent its inevitable that his passion for the dram should find an outlet in the form of a whisky partnership with renowned whisky guru Hector McBeth as 1 part of 2 Macs and A Dram.
As a Brand Ambassador he aims to create engaging content across our platforms enticing you to share your love of Susan Stanleys Fine Wines & Spirits.
Nadia Degenaar - Brand Ambassador
Nadia Degenaar has a naturally ambitious and curious nature, always needing to know the why behind absolutely everything, and this is why she pursued studies in biology and obtained an undergraduate degree, double majoring in Genetics and Physiology at Stellenbosch University. Time in this Wineland town lead to a blossoming interest in South African wine and this saw her switching her academic focus to an Honours Degree in Wine Biotechnology and ultimately her Master’s degree as well. Nadia’s thesis focused on fermentation performance and aroma production of unconventional wine yeasts, so you could say she’s a proud wine nerd.
Throughout her studies, Nadia immersed herself in the wine industry and took the opportunity to work part-time at two world-renowned wineries, namely Uva Mira and Beau Constantia. Her time in the Tasting Room at these wineries inspired a passion for communication and sharing the joy of wine. As a result, she obtained the internationally accredited WSET Level 2 certification and participated in an intensive one-year Strategic Wine Marketing course which was presented by industry professionals.
When Nadia is not studying wine, talking wine or sipping wine, she leads an active lifestyle that includes CrossFit, hiking the mountains of the Cape and exploring the natural marvels of our Province.
