About the winery
Our home is at Morendat Farm, Naivasha, in the heart of Africa’s Great Rift Valley. Lying along the equator, the grapes enjoy the warmth of the invigorating sun. Temperatures range from a cool 6° to a tropical 32° Celsius, and annual rainfall is 500 to 600mm. This equatorial climate allows each grape to mature and ripen slowly, patiently developing every nuance of its fine fruity taste. Naivasha’s high altitude of 2000 metres preserves the grapes’ delicate flavours. Our name comes from the Leleshwa Tree that bountifully surrounds our vineyards, embracing our passion and refreshing the work of our hands. As we worked moment by moment, day by day, we discovered the true spirit of Kenya. It’s the creative element that drives us, binds us, unites us. As Kenyans, we continually seek opportunities to express ourselves beautifully, naturally, artistically. We found a way to nurture this irrepressible essence and bottle it. Kenyans love their own, and Kenya is what inspired us.
