Marinda Blake


I have extensive experience in the wine and tourism industry. Approximately 18 years in various positions in the wine industry, notably PR Manager for the Swartland Wine & Tourism Route for 7 years.  When I had finished my studies at Stellenbosch, I started to work at Bovlei Wine Cellar where I was working for 6 years.  After my marriage I moved to Robertson and worked at De Wetshof Estate and Graham Beck Wines.  From Robertson we moved to Malmesbury where I headed the Swartland Wine & Tourism route.  I am also very passionate about good customer service and therefore, I am involved with quite a few cellars with the Mystery Guest programs.   The media also forms an integral part of my job and I have extensive contacts amongst media members.
