kenya winner

>> WINNER:  samuel ndichu


Kenya’s newly crowned sommelier champion Sam Ndichu is well known in the wine circles from his expansive experience working with specialized wine merchants Domaine Kenya,  The Wine Gallery and Urban Wine Shop in the capital’s central business district. He is now an independent wine consultant undertaking projects. Predictably his drink of choice is wine, but a little known fact is that Sam’s chosen mode of transportation is a motorbike, which he used to ride to and from the competition! Riding a motorcycle is a full sensory experience just like drinking wine.
 
Sam took up the challenge for the sommelier world cup to test himself against his peers and get the experience of international competitions. The platform attracted the best in Kenya.  Definitely not a walk in the park! Samuel Ndichu look forward to flying the Kenyan flag high!
