Nassen, who has a double graduate degree in Psychology and Sociology from UCT and Viticulture and Oenology from the University of Stellenbosch, was born and bred in Cape Town.Nassen said her career took a different path after graduating from UCT and that she had the support of her family.

“I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do after graduating with a Bachelor of Social Sciences from UCT. I decided to continue my studies, and agriculture was an option at Stellenbosch University. I felt this would suit my personality perfectly. Since I started studying and getting to know the wine subjects, I immediately knew this is for me. headtopics.com

“I have been fortunate to have lots of support from my whole family, especially my husband, Kenny, who is also involved in the wine trade.”Nassen is expected to start her wine career on November 1 at Tokara.“I’m still trying to process everything that has happened over the past few weeks. It is an honour to be chosen to work at Tokara,” she added.

During this time, she managed to make space for a vintage in France at the highly regarded Domaine Yves Cuilleron in the Northern Rhône wine region.
