FAMILY WINERY & VENUE
Gerakaris Family Wines was founded in 2008 by Kath Gerakaris as a wine marketing company focused on bringing boutique Cape wineries to the Johannesburg market.
The business has developed into a holistic wine enterprise encompassing the venue, wine education to the professional and private markets, wine consulting and garagiste winemaking!
Quickly tiring of the corporate world back in Auckland, Kath enrolled at the University of Lincoln and completed a year long Post Graduate Diploma in Viticulture and Oenology. With her freshly minted qualification in hand she left New Zealand and planned to globetrot once more and learn all there was to know about winemaking in all the great producing countries.
First stop, South Africa. She never left!
Kath has worked in several top South African cellars including Thelema and Flagstone. She was also be able to combine her marketing degree and experience as marketing manager for Whalehaven & Idiom wines.
In 2008 Kath moved to Johannesburg and launched Gerakaris Family Wines, a marketing company focused on bringing boutique Cape wineries to the Johannesburg market.
The business has developed into a holistic wine enterprise encompassing garagiste winemaking, wine education to the professional and private markets, and wine consulting.
Kath is married to Minos and they have two children, Elli and Thomas
