Three days in the Valley

Earlier this week, I was fortunate to spend three days visiting wineries in the Bekaa Valley and North Lebanon with German wine critic and Master Sommelier, Hendrik Thoma (www.weineamlimit.de). Hendrik  will be giving a masterclass  with me at Prowein in Dusseldorf on Monday 25 March at 15:00. http://ow.ly/j5dpn

See you there!
