Carmen Stevens Wines was established in 2011 with our maiden vintage in 2014. Carmen Stevens have been involved in the South African Wine Industry since qualifying in 1995. Carmen graduated as the first black South African to study the art of winemaking in South Africa. In January 2019 Carmen registered the first 100% black owned winery in South Africa in the picturise Stellenbosch.Our Label and the meaning: Our label display a “tiger” on closer inspection three figures are seen. A man on the right side of the “tiger”, a bird with a red beak on the left side of the “tiger” and a face of a dog between the man and the bird all taken together by the body and colour of the “tiger”. Our label is an expression of how different people experiences wine. Some people pick up a glass and identify all characteristic immediately while others take time to see all the wine is expressing in the glass. The “Tiger” is very special to me. My eldest daughter, Caitlin, painted “tiger” at school when she was only 6 years old, and I love it.
