Its name inspired by the words of William E. Henley (see below), Invictus Wines embodies the 'unconquerable'. A vineyard planted with promise and potential but overtaken by its own devices and overgrowth over the years has been recently reigned back in by the hands and ambition of Thomas Watson, referred to as 'Captain' on the Magda Vineyard site.
Lover of wine, disciple of science and explorer of adventure in the form of any formidable challenge, Watson fell in love with a piece of land and the people who have served as loyal guardians for these vines over the years. With a heritage to preserve, a vineyard to tame and a story that has yet to be told, Watson had dedicated his time and talent moving forward to bringing tangible definition to the term 'unconquerable' with Invictus Wines.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
