Leila Rosé: A New Wine Debuts in Cairo from Gianaclis

Leila Rosé: A New Wine Debuts in Cairo from Gianaclis
    written by

    It
    isn’t often that a new wine goes on sale in Cairo, so you’ll forgive us for being quite
    excited to hear that today is the official launch of Leila Rosé . This latest
    offering from Gianaclis and Al Ahram Beverages is due to hit the shelves across
    the Capital from tomorrow.

    This
    new wine brings much needed variety to local wine lists found in the
    Capital.   According to one of our
    reviewers who was lucky enough to have a preview tasting last week at Kattameya Heights, we have a lot to look forward
    to in this “refreshing step up” for local wines.   This latest offering comes at an opportune
    time when Egyptian wines are experiencing something of a renaissance, as over
    the last five years newcomers such as Ayam, Cape Bay,
    and Caspar have made their way onto the Capital’s wine lists.

    Leila’s
    producers have been busy promoting it worldwide, and we’re told that
    international connoisseurs were impressed enough to start distributing Leila in
    other countries following its premier at the London International Wine Fair
    earlier this year.   The wine includes a blend of Sangiovese and Tempranillo
    grapes and like all wines from Domaine de
    Gianaclis, Leila is 100% locally grown.

    For a reasonable
    65LE, Leila will be available at all Drinkies locations as well as various five
    star hotels and other premium venues.
