House of Mandela winesThe House of Mandela offers two tiers of wine, with prices ranging from US$12 for its Thembu collection to $50 for its Royal Reserve.

Tukwini Mandela, Nelson Mandela’s granddaughter, told the Huffington Post: “The wine movement is growing. More people are experimenting with wine beyond spirit drinks. And there’s a large segment of the black community which is interested in wine now.”

The Thembu Collection features a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and a Pinotage plus white wines of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. In the Royal Reserve the House of Mandela has produced a Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and a Shiraz, there is also a sparkling wine available.

House of Mandela also said it will donate a portion of its proceeds to charitable groups working on a range of socio-economic issues in South Africa.

Makaziwe Mandela, the former leader’s daughter said: “It’s a reflection that South Africa is maturing in terms of its wine product.

“There is a lot of synergy between wine and our family. But when you look at how the vine grows, the vine doesn’t grow in a straight line. It twists and turns, representing the twists and turns of life. Life is not a straight line. What we are proud of is that out of adversity we helped create a wonderful experience.”
