The Wine and Food Review is a Kenyan blog that keeps you abreast with all industry news about Beer, Wine, Spirits and food. We are always at the forefront of what is happening in the drink industry in Kenya and Africa at large. The blog also takes you to the best restaurants and gives you unbiased reviews as well as recommendations. We have been in existence since December 2013 and we have maintained our reputation.

The blog articles are mostly written by Jean Wandimi who lives in Nairobi. She is always trying to be authentic and original in her content. When we have a guest writer we credit him/her on the article.

I am always at the scene bringing you the information and news through my pieces. If you love Food & Drink you will definitely enjoy my writing. I have received a resounding reception and I have realized that Kenyans are always on the lookout for new experiences. Check out my ‘People’s column as I interview the Industry experts“.
