Managing Director

Jonathan Mylrea

Jonathan’s love for Eagles Nest began when his family purchased the estate in 1984. He graduated as a Mechanical Engineer from Stellenbosch University, and It was at Stellenbosch that his passion for the fruits of the vine was first awakened. After a career in manufacturing, he founded a project management company in 1994, which he sold in 2005 to focus on managing the family’s business interests. After a wildfire ravaged Eagles’ Nest in 2000, Jonathan and brother-in-law Peter Stewart decided to pursue their dream of founding a new premium wine estate. Jonathan now represents the family’s interests as Managing Director.

Cellar Master

Craig Barnard

Craig grew up in Botswana and Johannesburg. After completing high school he moved to Stellenbosch to study at Elsenburg Agricultural College where he obtained a degree in Cellar Technology. He has been lucky enough to intern at some of South Africa’s top wine estates as well as doing two international harvests, one at Chateau Angelus in Bordeaux, France and another at Williams Selyem in Sonoma, California.  Craig’s philosophy on winemaking is to respect the fruit and the terroir, with attention to detail paramount,  but at the same time to have fun! When Craig is not in the cellar you will find him riding the trails on his mountain bike or spending time with his wife and their dog, Zoey.

Viticulturist & Farm Manager

Kobus Jordaan

Born and raised in Worcester, Kobus is a farmer through and through. At the end of the day, when all the workers have gone home, you can still see him walking through the vineyards and checking on his beloved vines. Having graduated from Elsenberg in 1977, Kobus spent nearly four years working at Plaisir de Merle before Dougie Jooste – having spotted this talented young assistant farm manager – hired him to help establish the vineyards at his new farm, Klein Constantia. He spent 25 years there and his knowledge of Constantia is unparalleled. Since joining Eagles’ Nest in 2008, Kobus has played a pivotal role in ensuring that the grapes that come into the cellar are a true reflection of our very unique terroir.
