Q & A
Bernardus Winery, Winemaker
A passionate viticulturist, enologist, craftsman, and artist, Dean De Korth joined Bernardus Winery to bring to bottle Ben Pon’s philosophy of implementing Old World winemaking techniques in our New World setting. You won’t hear Dean describe wines in terms of numbers; rather he strives for something well beyond chemistry. His goal is to create wines that express the noblest expression of vineyard and varietal; wines that balance finesse and elegance with focus and power.
