Domaine Wardy Wine Tasting at Etienne Nicolas Boutique
The highlight of the night was my new addiction, their Obeideh white wine.
One of Beirut’s most treasured and iconic wine and spirits specialist, Etienne Nicolas hosted a wine tasting event for a selection of fine wines from the renowned Domaine Wardy, on May 7th, and it was a delight for me to attend.
It was my first time trying the newest release by Domaine Wardy, the Obeideh wine, which is a signature single varietal white wine made of 100% Obeideh, the emblematic indigenous Lebanese grape.
Some of the other wines we tasted were Private Selection Red, exclusively made from the best selection of grapes from the highest cultivated vineyards in the country; Private Selection White, a superbly aromatic blend of Muscat and Viognier; Perle du Château, an extraordinary white Chardonnay that captivates the senses with its elegance, complexity and roundness; and last but not least the Château les Cèdres, a complex red fine wine.
Congratulations to Domaine Wardy, one of the finest Lebanese wine-makers, on the launch of their exquisite new white wine, the Obeideh, in addition to their partnership with Dima SAL, which will help bring the brand into new horizons.
I couldn’t be more thrilled to witness how our wine industry is expanding worldwide, earning Lebanon quiet a refined reputation in the industry.
