Wine for Mr Nelson Mandela - Weltevrede Wine Estate had the honour of making a very significant wine for the 94th birthday of Mr Nelson Mandela. Seven years ago the dream was born when seven ancient vines were discovered in the prison garden on Robben Island. These vines grow where Mr Mandela buried his handwritten manuscript of Long Walk to Freedom in the prison garden.
