Get Ready to Taste 3 Bottles of Wine from Lebanon, Greece & Israel


When you think of Lebanon, Greece and Israel, I bet the first thing that comes to your mind isn’t wine, at least not good wine. The last time I was in Israel, I went to an organic vineyard and sampled some amazing wines there and in Tel Aviv bars.

While these countries may not be winning any major awards, there are some wines worth tasting.

Galil Mountain Yiron 2006 from Upper Galilee Israel: Think of big very ripe baked fruit and dried herbs, a wine that would go well with a beef chili or a goulash.

Domaine Gerovassiliou 2009 from Epanomi Greece: You get a floral bouquet combined with sharp tangy punch, a wine that would go well with salads or sushi if drinking it outside Greece.

Massaya Silver Selection 2006 from Bekaa Valley, Lebanon: A rich red blend has notes of red fruit and spices, a bite that kicks in well with grilled duck and potatoes.
