Our story begins with a deep connection to the land. When our family first laid eyes on Mellowood, we were immediately transported back to the rugged beauty of the Kenyan terrain. It was as if we had found a piece of Kenya in the heart of FairPlay. Inspired by this serendipitous resemblance, we knew we had discovered a place where our dreams could take root.

 A Harmonious Blend of Terroir and Tradition

At Mellowood, we celebrate the spirit of both worlds. Our vineyard embraces the remarkable terroir reminiscent of Kenya, infusing our wines with a distinct character and a sense of familiarity. The sun-drenched slopes, the subtle undulations of the land, and the rich volcanic soil converge to create an environment where our vines flourish.

 Unveiling the Artistry of Mellowood Wines

Drawing inspiration from our Kenyan heritage, we craft wines that capture the essence of the land and the rich tapestry of flavors it offers. Each sip takes you on a journey, revealing layers of complexity and the vibrant interplay between fruit-forward notes, earthy undertones, and a lingering spice.

 Mellowood Wines and the Flavors of Kenya

But our story doesn’t end with the wines alone. Mellowood wines have found their perfect companion in Kenyan cuisine. The bold, robust flavors of our Zinfandels and Syrahs beautifully complement the vibrant spices and aromatic dishes of Kenyan food. Whether it’s the succulent nyama choma (Kenyan BBQ), or the fragrant pilau (a famous Kenyan rice dish flavored with aromatic spices), our wines elevate the dining experience, bringing a touch of home to every meal.
