Lychee Boutique Winery
A longtime dream come true, the Takamaka Boutique Winery has been created by the talented, passionate and fully qualified winemaker, Alexander Oxenham. He is the only oenologist in Mauritius, who had the audacity to take up the challenge of producing wine in a totally different way. The Mauritian climate may not strike as suitable to make wine. But these tropical temperatures are ideal for the growth of red lychees, with juicy white flesh bursting with flavours. These are the secret ingredients to produce the delicious Takamaka Lychee Wine!
Indulge yourself in this wonderful tasting journey and get to meet the friendly team of Takamaka who will guide you to understand the lychee winemaking process. During the visit, you will watch a documentary about the history of Takamaka and different processes involved in making this exotic local wine.
Learn about the challenges and carefully managed processes from selecting the best orchards across the island to establishing the optimum maturity of the lychee fruit for its harvest, the sorting at the orchards and the second sorting at the winery, the hand peeling, and the environmental aspects of composting and reusing.
Needless to say that you will end your visit with a delicious and unique wine tasting session!
