The Awash Farm
Established in 1936, Awash is the leading wine producer in Ethiopia. Awash produces and sells wines to hotels, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. Its brands such as Awash, Gouder, Axumit and Kemila are household names in Ethiopia. The company has fully integrated operations, with two wineries in Addis Ababa and a 520 hectare farm outside Addis Ababa.
In July 2013, a consortium led by 8 Miles acquired a 100% interest in Awash Wine Share Company from the Ethiopian Privatization and Public Enterprises Supervising Agency.
