Decided to cruise up to the Koteka winery as we were slowly making our way around the island one day. We had great fun here tasting various wines & liqueurs.

Went specifically after reading about it online. Not what I imagined from prior reviews. The back room where it's made was a little off putting, hygiene wise.

Using my rich vanilla extract for the Christmas baking. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge, history and vision with us. The bubbly banana wine is... More

Thanks Koteka. Great visit, really enjoyed your banana wine and coconut vodka now we are back home. Keep up the good work! We definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Raro. Try local - buy local! We come and say hi when we are next back. Cheers Danny and Claudia 😊

Its an interesting stop in the jungle, beeping for the winemaker to come out. The winemaker comes out looking very laid back, but is very friendly and provides a lot of information. The... More

We stumbled upon this after a few trips around the island. We went up the dirt road to his house a little skeptical but he was one of the friendliest, inviting locals wee met on the island.
