Brad Paton – Buitenverwachting

You will not just find a beautiful wine farm on the east-facing slopes of the magnificent Constantiaberg, you will also find a drop-dead-gorgeous winemaker, who’s responsible for the magnificent wines produced at Buitenverwachting. Before joining the Buitenverwachting team in 2004, Brad worked in Germany for eight years, where he mastered the art of Riesling making. This hottie believes that you can only make a good wine, if you know what a good wine tastes like. He strives to live life to the fullest and adventure is the name of his game. Brad is a jaw-dropping sex god and the ladies find his sharp sense of humour, kind nature and heavenly wines simply irresistible.
