House of Mandela

The Mandela name is one steeped in heritage, resilience, royalty, and a sense of community. This legacy is a fitting symbol for the House of Mandela brand. Conceived of and led by the women of the Mandela family, Makaziwe and Tukwini, respectively daughter and granddaughter of Nelson Mandela, the wines draw inspiration from words he would often repeat to them:

“I was shaped by the cultural traditions and values of my ancestral roots.”

To help carry these traditions forward, the Mandelas have created wine that captures the soul and energy of South Africa. Tracing back to a small village by the Mbashe River, the Mandelas come from a royal bloodline that dates back to the 18th century when Thembu (pronounced “tembu”) Land was a part of a royal kingdom of the Eastern Cape. The family legacy reaches back to the great Chief Mphakanyiswa, Chief of Mvezo and father of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. House of Mandela wines embrace the same values as their namesake, and are now among the country’s ambassadors, shining light on the richness, diversity, and excellence of South Africa. The family hopes people will enjoy the wines when they come together to share stories, lessons and the spirit of unity.
