10 Best Wines in Kenya

Most popular wines in Kenya


Moments of our lives are made by decisions. These decisions can be overwhelming, especially when you have more than one option to choose from. Which option is better, A or B?😟, “Should I take a loan or save for this project?”, “What dress should I wear to that date”, or “Which shoes should I match with this belt”, or whether to watch a movie or go to sleep knowing that you got to wake early for work😀. Every decision shapes our lives and experiences, and that is why most of the time we hesitate to take that step.

Sometimes, our hesitations come from having little knowledge of the situation. For this reason, we scour around for information to guide our decisions. This could be done by asking our close friends and relatives, through Social Media or Google.

When it comes to wine, there are so many options it can be overwhelming. “Do I buy red sweet wine or dry red wine, or do I go with sweet white wine or dry white  wine?” If you have got that hot date and you might be asking, “ What are the best wines for ladies?” We have compiled a list of the most popular and best wines in Kenya. Hopefully, this will ease your decision-making process when it comes to types of wines.

This list has taken into account red wines, white wines, sweet wines, dry wines and sparkling wines popularly taken in Kenya, and considered the best.
