Nyekundu is the Swahili word for RED, and Mara Nyekundu is a delicious blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruity, with strong aromas of plums, vanilla, and blackcurrants. An approachable wine ideally suited to the traditional Kenyan Nyama Choma, Asian curries, exotic game meats, and a good old-fashioned steak. The amulet on this bottle of Mara wine has a very special purpose. It provides an income to two different groups of women in Kenya. In their remote villages, the village women gather to make the amulets as they sing songs celebrating their newly found financial independence. Your purchase of Mara wine enables these women to provide food, shelter, and education to their families and supports their entrepreneurship.
