As the festive period is slowly beckoning, a lot of wine bottles will be popped open. I am just here to make sure you are opening the good wine. In a previous post, I mentioned how hard it is to find good wine in Nairobi CBD, It has been the same story after the Nakumatt exit. You look for wine and you find the same old wine.

However, there is a new shop called Urban Wine House where you can find good wine. The shop is located on the junction of Koinange street and University way.

Why do I love this wine shop?

You do not have to leave the CBD to get good wine

There are some times you want to find wine in the CBD. I am surprised that most wine shops are located out of town yet the CBD has throngs of people on a daily.

The Prices

The prices are very reasonable.  You will be sure to find something depending on what your budget is.

A Great Shopping Experience

I do not know about you but when I am shopping for wine, I do not like being rushed. I like to go round the shop, reading labesl to be sure that I get what I like.


I like that this shop faces away from the sun. There is nothing worse than seeing that the wines you are about to buy are facing the sun. The storage is great and the shop is airy and cool. The bottles are also clean. organised and well stacked.

You get Advice and Guidance from a Wine Connoisseur as You Buy.

If you pass by the shop, you will find Sam who is always there to help you pick a good bottle.

You take a Trip round The Wine World.

I love how they have divided their space into regions. You can find wine from Australia, France and Spain each in their own shelves.\
