President and Chief Executive of Heritage Link Brands Selena Cuffe poses for a portrait inside Gnarly Vines wine shop in Brooklyn, New York January 29, 2010. Until 1994 when apartheid ended blacks had been banned from owning land and wineries. Today, there are about 4,000 wineries in South Africa but only two are owned by black families. "I thought someone needs to tell these stories. Why not us," said Cuffe, 34, who runs Heritage Link Brands, a U.S. company that imports wines produced by black South Africans.
