ABI - AFRICA BLESS ISRAEL Start up of non-profit orginisation and strategic direction, PROBONO

In Isaiah 19, the prophet speaks of a future where a highway and unity will exist between Israel, Assyria and Egypt - quite a far cry from the present reality! That being so, Israel (the central figure in this triad) is once again a nation. And Rev. Albert Mbenga, born in the Congo DR but a resident of Cape Town for 11 years, recognizes this as a sign of the times. Spurred on by his passion for Africa, this devout Christian has founded Africa Bless Israel with a mandate to change Africa's heart toward Israel. Rev. Mbenga has a vision to add momentum to the growing movement of Christians whose eyes are being opened to Israel's importance among the nations of the world. His heart is to see the God of Jacob honored as the Christian community gathers together from the four corners of the continent in a unified stand of solidarity with the nation of Israel.

Ridgemor wines, is located in one of the prime wine areas of the Western Cape. Our wines were named after the name of the Farm - Ridgemor. Dating back to 1670, Ridgemor is one of the oldest wine farms in the area. In fact, the name "Ridgemor", which was established in 1862, derives from its original owners, Ridge and Morris.  Initially, it belonged to Zandvliet and was used as a tobacco and cattle farm, yet because the farm was located in such an idyllic position for a wine farm, it was finally transformed into the wine farm we know today.

In 2003 the farm was bought by a small Dutch Family who founded Weening & Barge Winery @ Ridgemor, which is the symbol of the 360° quality of life in a bottle.
