Kumusha Wines: Taking Us Back to Our Roots
Kumusha Wines is a winery based in Slanghoek, Western Cape, South Africa, and was founded by Tinashe Nyamudoka, the Head Sommelier at the Test Kitchen, Cape Town
Tinashe has an inspirational story of his own, having arrived in South Africa in 2008, with no job prospects and zero knowledge about wine. But after a 3 month stint at a bakery, Tinashe was offered an opportunity to work at the Roundhouse restaurant, Cape Town, where he partook in a hospitality and wine program that marked the start of his career as a sommelier. Today, Tinashe is hailed as one of the most respected sommeliers of the continent
Kumusha, which means home in Shona, is dedicated to taking tasters back to their “Roots, Origins, and Homes”.
The company started with releasing a white blend, Kumusha White, at the end of 2017. The fruit in the blend comes from a 37 year old Chenin Blanc and 19 year old Semillon vineyard. After the white wine’s success, Kumusha went on to launch a red wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon/Cinsaut blend, as its winter release in 2018.
Kumusha Wines currently exports to Belgium and the Netherlands and is also looking to export to the US, UK, and Zimbabwe in the near future. The wine is also a major hit in Durban, South Africa. Kumusha Wines has received overwhelming support for its authentic flavors.
