Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines launches Great Heart

Four-time Platter's Winery of the Year Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines has launched a staff empowerment Wine Company called Great Heart.

After Mullineux winemakers Chris and Andrea recognised the effects that COVID-19 had on their staff and wine community during the first South African lockdown in 2020, they devised a staff empowerment project aimed at improving the livelihoods of all employees and their families. These exquisite wines are collectively owned by the winery staff, which means that all profits from sales under the Great Heart label will go directly to them.
