About the Takamaka Winery
Takamaka Boutique Winery was born of the conviction of a passionate winemaker, Alexander Oxenham, the only oenologist on the island, who took up the challenge of producing wine from lychees.
He was inspired by the long-standing tradition in Mauritius of producing alcoholic beverages from tropical fruits growing on the island. By creating the only winery in Mauritius dedicated exclusively to the production of lychee wines, Alexander Oxenham wanted to write the art of winemaking differently : with a lot of audacity, some technical know-how and a great amount of fun.
Mr Alexander is a proud producer of wine with a portfolio of skilfully designed local wines, full of great character.The lychee wine at Takamaka is made from the pulp of fruits which have been picked, peeled and deseeded and then left to ferment for up to three weeks.
