Mensa

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.
