Welcome to Thembi Wines - a trailblazer wine
company aiming to produce top quality wines
that are accessible to all.
Thembi sees herself in the role of educator and wine ambassador for communities with no wine culture. There are an increasing number of women with disposable income and a hunger to try new things.
As an entrepreneur she would like to inspire and empower other young 'up and coming' black women not to give up on their dreams, not to be intimidated by the fact that the wine industry is white and male dominated, but to be able to identify opportunities and thrive on challenges.
In paving the way for other aspiring wine makers, Thembi has been a trailblazer in the wine industry and trusts that her own story of hope, perseverance and self belief will inspire others to follow their dreams.
