In Kenya, the percentage of Australian wine in the market does not compare with other wine-producing countries like South Africa, France and Italy. However, some Australian companies have been eyeing Kenya as a destination for their wines in the next years.
Some of the wines we tasted are not in the Kenyan market. However, if you want to learn more about wines from Australia while in Kenya, you can still find a large quantity of wines to try out.
Currently, the following distributors have Australian wine in their portfolio
– Makkin Wines
– Dion Wines and Spirits
– Viva Distributors
– The Wineshop
In the next years, I predict that more Australian wines will make it to Kenya. More Kenyans are trying wines from different wine regions. Australian winemakers should look at Kenya as the consumer markets are expanding and the typical wine drinker is looking for high-quality wine from all over the world.
One way to start is to research the market, find out which wines would appeal to the Kenyan palate, tastes and preferences and to then contact distributors and partners locally.
