The Family
Grier Family: The Grier family is into it’s third generation as a family business. Grandfather Grier arrived in South Africa from the United Kingdom. He studied at Elsenberg and started an egg business. The second generation took it a step further and were involved in starting County Fair, an added value poultry business. The third generation were more interested in what to drink with poultry and started a wine business (Villiera) in 1983.

Jeff Grier: Studied at Stellenbosch University as a winemaker. After gaining practical experience locally and overseas he started at Villiera in 1983. In 1987 he became a Cape Wine Master and is responsible for wine production both at Villiera and Domaine Grier.

Simon Grier: Studied at Stellenbosch University but he was more interested in the outdoors, dovetailing perfectly with Jeff who was more interested in the cellar. Simon is responsible for the vineyards at Villiera and he has become a recognized authority in environmental aspects.

Cathy (nee Grier) Brewer: Studied computer science at UCT. After the family purchased Villiera wines she opted for a career change and went to study at Prue Leiths school of Food & Wine in London. She joined Villiera in 1987 and currently heads up the sales and marketing departments. She is also a Cape Wine Master.
