House of Mandela Wines and Cheese Pairing

The French Cheese Board hosted a cheese pairing around House of Mandela wines, on April 6, 2015 for select media. 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 wine. 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. 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. The Deep River white wine was paired with Brillat Savarin. The Cabernet / Merlot with an aged Comté and the Shiraz was paired with Abondance cheese. The combinations were unexpected but perfectly balanced. The press was delighted to discover new and exciting flavors that complemented the House of Mandela wines.
