I trust that my own story of hope, perseverance and self-belief
will inspire others to follow their dreams.”
Creating Wines of Excellence Through Knowledge & Innovation
An incredible amount of care has gone into crafting each of Thembi & Co’s wines. The wines reflect a passion for excellence and innovation which combine age old tradition with art and science. Situated in the quaint town of Wellington, Cape Town, the vineyard varies in soil and microclimate which allows for rare combinations of character and precisely defined flavour and fine textures which contribute to the complexity of our wines.
The Winemaking Philosophy
The Thembi & Co. winemaking process is grounded in by history and scientific tenets, to produce quality wines that are elegant, smooth and are easily accessible. The philosophy is deeply entrenched in the gentle handling of grapes and minimal intervention of wine.
“Thembi means hope, faith and belief
– hope for a better life and belief
that nothing is impossible.”
