Nelson Mandela Tribute
“I was not a messiah, but an ordinary man who had become a leader because of extraordinary circumstances,” Nelson Mandela said.
Nelson Mandela was a man with a mission. Growing up, he listened to the elder’s stories of his ancestor’s valor during the wars of resistance. He dreamed of making his own contributions to the freedom struggle of his people.
He never wavered in his devotion to democracy, equality and learning. Despite provocation, he never answered racism with racism. His life was an inspiration to all who were oppressed and deprived.
Now that the Father of South Africa has passed on, there is much to take way from his life. Primarily, his genuine demeanor and approachability as a leader. These qualities are the pillars to the House of Mandela wine line.

“It’s not just about Mandela only. We’re hoping that by lending our name to wine, we will increase the profile of South African wine around the world,” Tukwini explained.
