The House of Mandela

The House of Mandela is a brand conceived and owned by the progeny of Mandela. It is a truly South African creation, comprising of four single Royal Reserve varietals - Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and a Sparkling as well as six Thembu Collection varietals - Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chennin Blanc, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage. These popular wines stem from the best-in-breed wine regions in the country namely Stellenbosch and Paarl.

With the Royal Reserve and Thembu Collection wines, we as the House of Mandela, have captured the essence of our lineage, culture, heritage, roots, family values and all that we hold dear. Our wines reflect the lessons we have learnt from our Thembu elders and how we have been shaped by their peaceful, respectful and warm disposition as well as their strong belief in community. As our father and grandfather, Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela has consistently emphasized, "I was shaped by the cultural traditions and values of my ancestral roots." These wines enable us to tell our story to the world.

The story of the House of Mandela is a story of belonging, of a sense of shared destiny, of love, compassion, and kinship. We stand tall in our heritage with great pride, humility and gratitude. We reach out to honour and celebrate those who gave birth to us and look up with courage, for we too have dreams which we know are possible.

We hope that you will savour the House of Mandela wines with friends, relatives and colleagues and truly taste our story as you tell yours.
