Dine van Zyl

Dine van Zyl was born 1953 in Robertson. Her father, Pon van Zyl, was a winemaker and the first manager of the Robertson Cooperative Winery.
She is an alumnus of Stellenbosch University. She was a radio broadcaster and film maker of note and is today a writer and freelance journalist. She has received various awards for her documentary radio programmes and novels.
She lives in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and is involved in the conservation of fauna, fynbos flora and marine life. She is an authority on the traditional and culinary uses of the plants in her area.
