About Thandi Wines

Thandi began in Elgin in 1995 and its name is the Xhosa word for ‘nurturing love’. It is the first wine brand to receive Fairtrade accreditation and works towards empowering previously disadvantaged people and ethical trading. All the profits from the sale of this wine are ploughed back into the community.

Thandi became a stand-alone company in October and was also South Africa’s first agricultural Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) project as it is owned by 250 farm-worker families who hold 55% shares in the company. The community also have land-ownership over three farms. Thandi export about 85 % of its wines overseas and mostly to the European market. Thandi offer great wines in single varietals, dual varietals, top tier and sparkling wines.
