“It’s Friday night…Time to be a hero and rescue some wine trapped in a bottle’
And what better place to do so than at The Wine Shop…this hidden gem is situated at Piedmont Plaza, Nairobi. The space is super cute, with a tasting room stacking wines from floor to ceiling adjacent to a cozy café & bar for diners. The menu consists of salads, sandwiches and tapas and is great for a light lunch or girls night out.
They list over 300 wines from all around the world, including South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Italy & France. Some of their best selling brands include Domaine La Baume, B&G, Kiwi Cuvee & Colleccion Privada. Their wines can be purchased directly through The Wine Shop, or you can also find them at Carrefour or Chandarana Supermarkets. They also host monthly wine events and can organize pop-up wine bars for private parties.
Their Christmas hampers this year are unique and quirky with the option of a 3-tier gift hamper or a full Christmas tree filled with wine bottles.
Soraiya Ladak, a young, fearless entrepreneur who began her wine dream in 2012, owns the Wine Shop. She has grown the wine listing over the years, with an exquisite selection wines and champagnes. They aim to grow and expand their range of premium wines and plan to open another store in 2019! We can’t wait to see what they will have in store for us next year!
A Little Wine Note – Love PS
Options are endless – be it old school or new world wines. We have had a serious influx of wines in the market. Above all some of the wines we have savored this year have been from The Wine Shop.
My personal favorite is definitely the Neethlingshof Unwooded Chardonnay. There is nothing like ending my day with a glass of wine and a great playlist echoing in the background.
I love the Laurent Perrier Rose and was super excited to see that they stock it at The Wine Shop. I recently tried their Kiwi Cuvee Cabernet Franc Rose and it was also divine! I highly recommend it for a summer’s day!
We had a fun day tasting some of our favourite wines at The Wine Shop. Our Hair & Make Up is by @thehairroomkenya and photography by @mgphotostudiokenya – both incredibly talented and a pleasure to work with.
PS are both styled in Mango Kenya, we are so excited to have the new Mango Store open at Westgate Mall. Our entire wardrobe is this seasons stock and available at the store!
