Wrapping up a holiday in Egypt and am drinking a wine from the grape Bannati, apparently indigenous to Egypt, labeled as Beausoleil...
Does anyone know much about this grape? Good producers, etc...? Not a lot of information locally or online. Appreciate it!
Pretty far out for a Muslim nation! While I'm not well versed in Egypt wines though they do produce more wine than Israel which is a real head scratcher.
What was the Bannati like?
There are 20 million Christians in Egypt, though, and the country has gone through decently long periods of secularism at times.. reminds me of that time I stumbled upon a really solid winery and brewery in Palestine and realized that fermentations happen in most corners of the world.
