Born in Cape Town as part of a set of twins, Jolandie Fouche was raised in the Swartland, where she spent the larger part of her childhood roaming the farm and falling in love with the vineyards.

After matriculating, she studied towards a B. Agric degree at Elsenburg Agricultural Training Institute, followed by fascinating harvest seasons in Australia and California, respectively.

After more than a decade of earning her stripes in the South African industry, Jolandie decided to turn her attention to her passion project, Wolf & Woman Wines, fulltime. These days, she lives back home in the Swartland with her husband Gustav, daughter Helen and two Labrador retrievers, Cinsault and Simba.

A few years ago, Jolandie’s husband sent her a quote that he said reminded him of her. It read: “Some days I am more wolf than woman and I am still learning how to stop apologizing for my wild.” A while later she was at the airport and while waiting to board, she went into a book shop and saw the book Women who run with the wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. She immediately thought about that quote that Gustav had sent her and bought the book. After reading it she felt inspired, empowered and able to dream bigger and wilder than ever before. The book opened her eyes to the fact that the ‘wild woman’ is naturally creative, passionate and instinctive. These are characteristics she believes are crucial when you make and live wine.
