Get to know a Female Kenyan-American Vintner

Christine Wachira Director of Winemaking describes what is behind each wine in the collection, our commitment to sustainability, and how each glass provides a wine, elevated experience.

Wachira Wines is a woman owned winery and a culmination of the extraordinary vision and effort of Dr. Chris Wachira, the first Kenyan-born, Californian winemaker, distributor, importer and exporter. Her story is about the love of her home country and the ability to succeed through adversity. While working her way through college, earning her Doctorate, and dedicating her life to Clinical Outcomes research, Chris fell in-love with the science of winemaking. She developed a deep appreciation for the sense of community and bridges built from sharing a bottle of wine with complete strangers.

Secondly, Chris celebrates the ability to realize one's dreams and emphasizes the importance of family and one’s roots. She has created an international wine that celebrates Kenyan culture, Kenyan values, and her dual Kenyan-American adventure. A wine that is truly Kenyan-American. Wachira, her family name, has been passed down for generations; in translation it means "one who deals with cases" such as an attorney or a judge. Hundreds of years later, she now deals with "cases" of wine. Chris chooses to believe wine-making was written in her stars.

Wachira Wines is committed to creating unforgettable experiences featuring our #winesafari moments shared with family and friends. When we put our family name on our wines, we ensure they deliver the highest quality vintages. We are more than a wine label, we are a lifestyle.


We're about building diversity in the wine community by creating unique, memorable experiences through our #winesafari.


We envisioned our wines being shared by a group of friends on warm summery afternoons, over fond memories and deep bellied laughs. We have been meticulous in crafting varietals that complement this vision.


To share our wines and our wine lifestyle with the global market through a network of loyal, satisfied clients, vendors, and international distributors. We are very proud of the quality of our products and we hope you will be too..
