With a name taken from the Zulu word for ‘a meeting of the minds’, or a traditional gathering of tribal leaders for a sharing of ideas, Indaba was created as a celebration of the democratisation process in South Africa and from its inception, the wines have conveyed the spirit of South Africa. Production is overseen by Bruwer Raats, celebrated winemaker of Raats Family Wines and winemaker Clayton Christians (pictured below) who work closely with farmers in emerging regions of the Cape Winelands such as Robertson, Wellington and the Breede River Valley.
A commitment to social responsibility has always been a key part of the Indaba philosophy, with a portion of the proceeds from the wine’s global sales funding the Indaba Foundation, under which Indaba is taking its long-standing commitment to education a step further by shifting its focus to the crucial area of early childhood development. The foundation provides Montessori teacher training to support children living in vulnerable conditions in the South African Winelands, as well as providing learning materials and educational infrastructure to schools established for wineland worker’s children.
