Our Story

Welcome to SOKO, the Marketplace of Alcohol. Our passion of creating an inclusive village where all makers are welcome has culminated in SOKO. The market place showcases makers that are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color), women, and locals. As a CA distributor, importer, and exporter of wine, beer and liquor, SOKO offers premium and unique products.

CEO, Dr. Chris Wachira and COO, Chadwick Spell have over 15 years of distribution experience between them. They share a vision of building community and inspiring an appreciation for underrepresented brands.

To family & friends. To fine wines and lasting memories. Cheers!!


Our goal is to showcase the incredible diversity of talent and products that remain underrepresented. We have curated incredible wines from some of the best of BIPOC winemakers in the industry.


When we ventured into the wine industry five years ago, we identified a glaring gap of inequity and underrepresentation for BIPOC makers. Distribution and market penetration is a significant challenge for us.

Our Solution

We have made a commitment to our community to be intentional and deliberate about bringing BIPOC products to market. Through this platform, we have created a centralized, one-stop-shop that allows us to celebrate our collective diversity. We invite you to shop our selections and create lifetime memories with these top-quality products.
