The history of winemaking in Tanzania dates back to the 16th century, when the
Portuguese brought the first grapevines to the region. However, it wasn't until the 1960s
that winemaking began to take off in earnest, with the establishment of the state-owned
Dodoma Wine Company in Dodoma. Which is now Domiya Estate. Today, the Dodoma region remains Tanzania´s premier wine-producing areas, known for its high-quality grapes and ideal growing conditions. The region´s warm, dry climate and well-draining soils provide the perfect environment for growing grapes, and winemakers have taken full advantage of these conditions to produce some of the finest wines in the country.
