Wancha ዋንጫ means ‘horn cup’ and ‘winner’s trophy’ in the Amharic language. Wanchas are still in use in modern Ethiopia for serving non-t’ej drinks (a berelé is used for t’ej honey wine).
The background of the label is a close-up photo of a horn. Horn cups are the oldest drinking vessel – much like honey wine is the 1st fermented beverage – and popularized by the Vikings.
While Ethiopia is known for honey wine, there is also a rich artisanal, non-domesticated, grape wine tradition dating back centuries as a refreshment, and beginning in the 4th Century, for use in Holy Communion.
