The last few weeks I have been looking for the ultimate Christmas wines available in Kenya. This list is based on personal preferences. I haven’t decided where I will be spending my Christmas but wine is part of the equation. I believe that Christmas wines should be celebratory wines. They don’t necessarily have to be bubbly’s or sparklings. Here are my ”12 wines of a Kenyan Christmas 2014”. If you have a question on the wines, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask me on twitter using the hashtag #askaconnoiseur.
1. Fantinel Prosecco.
I had this wine at a dinner in Meditteraneo 9 West last week and I believed that it made the cut. It had beautiful straw color accompanied by a fruity bouquet with hints of golden apples. It filled the mouth with a burst of flavors that are fruity. It is a consistently popular, lively, classic sparkling wine perfect for any festive occasion. get this wine here. 2.
