The wines are not just about the juice in the bottle, they are the story of the House of Mandela and the story of the rainbow nation of South Africa. Lineage and maintaining our legacy plays an important part of our story and incorporating wine into the House of Mandela is our way of claiming who we are, where we come from and belong. It is a way of paying homage not only to our father and grandfather, but honouring our ancestors.
Therefore, our passion lies in creating and contributing to projects with a soul and the alignment of our family values with the understated quality of the wines is the perfect way for us to share our story with the world. Each and every bottle holds a distinct piece of Africa, her history and her people. It is for this purpose that we have chosen wine as a bridge between the past, present and future – an appropriate way in which to tell our story.
