La Campagne Tropicana boosts tourists’ experience with palm wine factory
To boost the experience of both local and international guests, La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort Lagos has created a factory for brewing local palm wine.
Occupying a sprawling natural enclave that is a mix of beachfront overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and flanked by the lagoon, as well as fresh water, swampy and tropical forest, the wine factory is located right within the precinct of the resort, in Ikegun Village, Ibeju Lekki, by the forest area of the resort.
The beach resort, which has continued to blaze the trail and drive traffic to its leisure enclave with its amazing creative offerings, recently made a landmark in the winery by treating visitors to a blend of African offerings in every aspect.
With a live station where visitors can watch the processing of the palm wine juice from the beginning to the end, the beach resort, which is known as home for peaceful co-habitation of man and nature, is all out to boost visitor’s experience by spicing the local flavours of their palates with the new addition of the winery.
According to the management, the creation of the wine factory is in line with the brand proposal of the resort, which is exposing visitors to the best of African hospitality infused with sophistication and delivered by cultured professionals in a unique and appealing manner.
“The process of getting natural palm wine is easy and fun; from the cutting of the palm tree to connecting a straw from the tree to the container, this process is extraordinary as it involves no chemical additives. Guests visiting the resort can also go on a free tour of the factory.’’
On the benefits of palm wine, the management noted that the natural wine helps in the following: “It promotes lactation for nursing mothers; treatment of stomach problems; treatment of skin rashes; maintaining healthy skin and hair; and treatment of the eye.”
However, the economic implication of this new winery development is that the factory will boost the GDP of the host community and environs as it now offers opportunity for some of the locals to be gainfully employed, while others will have the farm produce patronised on a regular basis.
