Hello cold weather.
Hello warm holiday shenanigans.
We love the Holiday Season.
It's that time of the year that brings loved ones together - and what could be better than hanging out with your special someone all cozy and warm, over a great bottle of wine.
If you're on the lookout to try a new one this season, then you're in the right place.
We asked our friends over at Domaine Wardy to recommend 3 of their favorite bottles for the holiday season. We then paired each bottle with 3 loved-up couples that best represent each type of wine, for nothing other than your enjoyment.
We dressed the couples with outfits from local stores here in Beirut, and invited them over for a Domaine Wardy wine-filled evening, complete with a cheese that we also paired with each wine (and tried to do it all in the most non-cheesy way possible :)).
Without further ado meet our third pair.
Episode 3: Unconditional Love & Sweet White Wine
Nour, Yasmine & Perle du Chateau
Nour (left) and Yasmine (right) are sisters, one year and eleven months apart - you guess who's the older one.
Yasmine is actually working with us over at Raghunter before she goes off to do her Masters in Fashion Styling at Polimoda in Florence.
Nour moved back to Beirut after finishing Fashion Business at IED in Florence, and now is the Digital Editor over at Aishti magazine.
Both sisters clearly love fashion, and they have a good sense for it too. Even though they have a lot in common, they were telling us how different their characters are.
No matter what though, the beauty of sisterhood is a type of love that's unconditional. It's the laughs, the fights, the happiness and the shared moments that only sisters can understand.
Unconditional love is beautiful and sweet, like Domaine Wardy's Perle du Chateau white wine bottle.
It is an extraordinary Chardonnay that captivates the senses with its elegance, complexity and roundness. A smooth wine, it has powerful tropical fruit and peach aromas with hints of honey and spice. The balanced use of French oak adds depth and softness.
Recommended Cheese Pairing: Compté
We asked the guys over at Domaine Wardy to recommend the best cheese to pair with Perle du Chateau.
Compté is a hard, slightly salty French cheese that melts oh-so smoothly in your mouth. Perle du Chateau goes hand in hand with this cheese. The sweetness and softness of the wine collide with the saltiness and the hardness of the cheese creating a perfectly balanced amalgam of taste.
