M’Hudi: In 2003, Malmsey and Diale “Oupa” Rangaka left their respective careers in medicine and academia and moved to the Western Cape to purchase a vineyard. After several months of searching, the Ranganka’s made history procuring a 103-acre wine and fruit farm outside of Stellenbosch, South Africa, and in the process becoming the first black family in the countries history to do so.
The move to Stellenbosch was courageous and inspired. From the beginning, it was this amazing story that became the catalyst for forming the ISAW Foundation. ISAW has established a close relationship with the family, and are working to establish a viticultural training center on this historic property.
