buying wine online in Nairobi

Does anyone know where I can buy some decent wine online in Nairobi?

I am located overseas (UK) and want to buy some wine for delivery in Nairobi.

Thanks

Well from the Kenya Wine Agencies website (www.kwal.co.ke/index.php…) you can get a list of wines available in Kenya, I do not know if you can buy online maybe you can try the following places:

Thanks very much. Sadly no luck so far. Most don't respond. Credit card payments from abroad are a problem too (and we don't have mpesa in the UK). I will post if I find one that can do it.

You can make Mpesa payments from the UK, using the joint Mpesa - Western Union facility, haven't used it myself.

I use UK credit cards routinely in supermarkets over here with no problems, I also buy my data bundles from Orange Kenya online with a UK credit using Pesa Pal

Thanks very much for everyone's help. I have now discovered 'WWW Shop and Bar' [ http://www.wineshop.co.ke/wines-online/ ] (who also have a Trip Advisor entry as a restaurant/ wine bar). They will deliver, and take orders by credit card, and have a good, long list of wines from Europe and the new world, and offer sommelier advice, too.

Another place that said they could do it was 'Chandarana Supermarkets', Lenana Place, Lenana [ http://www.chandaranasupermarkets.co.ke ], but their wine list is much less interesting.

'Wines of the World' [ http://wineseastafrica.com/ ] have also been recommended to me.
