Martin Moore Obituary, Death Cause – Martin Moore has died. We express our heartfelt sympathies. In a message that was posted online, it was stated that “The Durbanville Wine Valley is deeply saddened by the loss of Martin Moore, who served as the Durbanville Hills Wine Cellarmaster.” He was a highly-liked member of the Durbanville Wine Valley as well as the South African wine business, and he was associated with Durbanville Hills from the time the foundations were set until the year 1999, when they produced their first vintage. He passed away in the year 1999.
It is impossible to find another guy with Martin’s combination of fantastic sense of humor, magnetic charisma, and inexhaustible enthusiasm for wine (and cuisine).
We are raising a glass of his favorite Sauvignon Blanc to him right now. Raise a glass! Cheers. We are going to miss having Martin here with us. Martin was well-known for creating great wines and for his part in bringing the Durbanville Hills brand to the notice of customers all over the world.
He also had a role in bringing the brand to the attention of consumers in South Africa. Martin had a profound awareness not only of winemaking, but also of the terroir and the people who lived in our region, and he had a real admiration for them. Martin’s knowledge of winemaking was not limited to only the winemaking process itself. His expertise was not confined to the production of wine alone. He was a proud father who never passed up an occasion to crow about his sons’ achievements and would do so whenever he could. During this trying time, we want the Moore family to know that we are thinking of them and sending our condolences.
