External Job Opportunity Announcement at Awash Wine Share Company

Established in 1936, the first winery in Ethiopia was initiated by a Greek family in Addis Ababa at Lideta. Subsequently, an Italian family founded their winery at Mekanisa. In 1974, both ventures were nationalized and merged into a single entity named Awash Wine, which has since become a household name and one of Ethiopia’s most beloved brands. Awash Wine is a market leader intricately woven into the cultural fabric of society.

In September 2013, 8 Miles LLP, a private equity fund, became the majority owner of Awash Wine Share Company. Substantial investments have been made since then to upgrade facilities, enhance product quality, and diversify the product portfolio. Presently, Awash Wine stands as the leader in the Ethiopian wine market, continually growing with a vision for further expansion.

Awash Wine currently operates four sites, including two wineries and a Distribution Centre in Addis Ababa, along with a 517-hectare farm featuring a 225-hectare vineyard located in the Oromia region, Arsi Zone, Merti Wereda.
