Such a pleasure to watch people starting their business, rushing to work, then having a sip of coffee in a cafeteria, and finally coming back home or heading to restaurants or bars. With a glass of wine in hand, some strong alcoholic drinks or beer, cervejarias and pubs were full of people.
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about Mexico and alcohol, is definitely tequila and all kind of drinks with lime juice. But the selection of alcohols is much wider.
Two Château Kefraya – red 2012 and white 2016, Les Bretèches 2014, Myst 2016 and Comte de M 2010 - perfect blends of grapes' varieties.
When I think about Sapporo, I think about Winter Olympics in 1972. And there is much more to do and see than only a ski jump. One of the towns that are close to Sapporo is Otaru. A nice, little town, with great buildings, some remaining historical architecture and brewery!
As time was still good for Lebanese Beaujolais Nouveau, we had a chance to taste jeune wines from Château Musar. Musar Jeune Blanc, Rouge and Rosé are all bottled and labeled in the same way. The label is simple, minimalistic in the design and elegant.
One white from 2007 and two red wines, in which one of them was a 2005 wine and the second one from 2014.
Continuing our wine tasting tradition, we went to Château Kefraya. That vinery is in the western part of Bekaa Valley and spreads over 300 hectares of slopes.
Château Musar is located not far away from Beirut. Just 25 to 30 km north from the capital. The town is also worth visiting as it has a nice atmosphere, medieval look and looks as it could look like hundred of years ago.
