La Carmela Delice
In 1985, a gift was given to Carmelite Sisters of Kigali: A huge amount of Pineapples. The Sisters made jam and ate a lot of it and there was still a lot left. One of the sisters had been in Italy where she had learnt how to make wine.
The Sisters decided to use this wine technology with the left over pineapples. This is how Carmela Delice was born and further developed With all exotic fruits produced organically in Rwanda.
Le Secret des Grands Lacs
In 1991, one of the young girls that joined the Carmelites of Rusizi. She had previously learned winemaking by a priest of Orval. She started to share her knowledge with the other sisters and they decided so to make wine together and with different fruits.
Since then, Le Secret des Grands Lacs was born and further developed With exotic fruits produced organically in Rwanda
