Perched in the hills just south of Tripoli, Lebanon is this relatively new winery.  Built to be ‘green’ they have won awards for their design and production.  The winemaker was a really nice Spanish gent who communicated in French through my uncle.  I may have missed a few comments, lost in the translation, but the wines were impressive.  We drank their white straight form the tank- a blend that included Muscat which really excites me.  It was fragrant, medium bodied and delicious.  Sampling reds from the barrel was a delight.  We got to see the blending room and also the cellars.  A fascinating winery with some excellent potential.  Mark my words, in 10 years time this wine will be very sought after.  Salut….
