All you need to know about India’s first organic kiwi wine
Naara Aaba’s journey began in 2017 with the concept of preserving organically harvested kiwis in the region through wine-making. Arunachal Pradesh has a lush environment where exotic fruits such as kiwis, pears, peaches, and plums thrive.
Previously, however, the harvested fruits were not properly marketed, resulting in the fruits decaying in waste.
Tage Rita, the company’s founder, had the vision to revitalise the local farming community by sourcing their harvest to make wines while preserving the nutritional values of the exotic fruits. Naara Aaba, India’s first organic kiwi wine, was born in this manner.
Naara Aaba, India’s first organic kiwi wine, was born in this manner. The Naara Aaba winery, located in Hong Village in Ziro Valley, gradually churned out delicious kiwi wines that travelled to new markets and are now available in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, and Meghalaya by combining the tradition of wine-making with advanced & sustainable technology.
