Wade Roger-Lund was born in Worcester but grew up in Johannesburg. Given the nickname Fat kid, by his sister, he is anything but. His hobbies include motorbikes and mountain bikes and he has been racing motorbikes since the age of 4.

Wade’s passion for wine came through his uncle, John Loubser – Cellar Master at Steenberg and MCC maker of Silverthorn.

Wade studied winemaking at Elsenburg and excelled! After travelling to France and doing harvests in many parts of the Cape, Wade joined the Jordan winemaking team in December of 2014. He has been a huge asset and has even started making a small batch of MCC under the Jordan label. To be released at the end of 2017.
