Mensa Wines


Opening a good wine is like reading a good book...

… first there’s the anticipation … then the delight … and ultimately the lasting rewards.

This is Mensa’s story. Soon after she was born, her loving grandfather changed her name from the traditional Emmarentia Cornelia to the distinctive, one-of-a-kind ‘Mensa’. Her love of stories saw her nose always immersed in a good book, making her understand that fact can indeed be more exciting than fiction and that every wine, and person, has a unique story to tell. Let Mensa inspire you to live a great story.

As part of the Overhex Wines International portfolio, Mensa wines proudly reflect the superb quality which has put Overhex on the world wine map.
