Rita Trafford studied art at Stellenbosch University for 2 years before switching from visual to olfactory art and graduating from Silwood Kitchen, a local Cordon Bleu cookery school. She continues her passion for painting, and when given a break from being mother, chief and chef of household and home, she can be found happily creating art in her studio.

She continues to provide the de Trafford Chenin Blanc with new artwork for each vintage. Reluctantly and occasionally she does part with the original paintings.

In 2017 Rita started creating naturally eco-printed silk scarves that has now been used for our labels and are available for sale at the winery.
