MAN Family Wines was founded in 2001 in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Although the name might suggest otherwise, MAN Family Wines refers to three women: Marie, Anette and Nicky. They are the partners of the three founders: José Conde from Stark-Condé and the brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh from Joostenberg Wines.
It all started with a simple idea: to make a wine that they would like to buy themselves. No sooner said than done. They made the first 300 boxes of Pinotage from a tractor shed.
