The success of Egyptian wines at European trade fairs (by Reinhard Rhaue)
The three wine producers of Egypt met with international competition at the international wine expos in Bordeaux, Montpellier, London and Düsseldorf and received positive acclaim worldwide.
The days, when the consensus was that it is not possible to produce good wines under the existing desert conditions, are now finally over.
Al Ahram Beverages – already well known to many wine-lovers under the name Château Gianaclis – presented their premium wines Ayam red, Ayam white, Zaman and Leila to 14000 visitors in London from the 18th – 20th May 2010. The British wine press headlined: "Gianaclis Wines are a hit!"
The EgyBev winery located in El Gouna – which, by the way, you can visit during your holiday on the Red Sea – took their Jardin du Nil red and the Jardin du Nile white to Montpellier to the Millésime Bio 2010 in February and astonished the 489 wine producers and 2700 visitors as well as gaining their respect for high quality.
Sahara Vinyards met with competition mainly from central Europe at the ProWein in Düsseldorf in March 2010 - 3300 exhibitors and 36000 visitors – and just like last year, caused a sensation with their three Caspar-Premium white wines and the Nermine red wine. Publishers of professional journals for food and drink were particularly enthusiastic.
Broaden your knowledge on Egyptian wines and take part in our wine seminar on October 21st 2010 in the Bombay Flowers Restaurant’s wine corner.
