Perfect Pairings: Wise Love & Deep Red Wine | Episode Two

Recommended
Brought to you by Domaine Wardy Logo

Hello December.
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 second pair.

Episode 2: Wise Love & Deep Red Wine

Nayla, Gaby & Domaine Wardy Private Selection

Nayla & Gaby have been together for five years, and they're totally in love.

It was truly such a pleasure to spend some time with them for this wine-filled evening.

We asked them what it's like to be in love at this time and they said it's definitely very different than in your 20s, there's a certain contentment and calm about wise love. Gaby beautifully said, "Five years is not nearly enough, it's such a short amount of time."

Cheers to all of us finding a love like that.

Wise love is deep and strong, like Domaine Wardy's very exclusive Private Selection bottle.

Domaine Wardy Private Selection 2

It's made from the best selection of grapes from the highest cultivated vineyards in the country (at an altitude of 1,400m above sea level).

A blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon that has been aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months, this unfiltered red wine has an expressive spicy nose with hints of clove and a luxurious taste of red fruits and spices with a caramelized finish.

Recommended Cheese Pairing: Roquefort

We asked the guys over at Domaine Wardy to recommend the best cheese to pair with Private Selection.

Roquefort cheese is a creamy, crumbly, rich and tangy cheese. The best wine of choice for this cheese would be a wine with a taste that contrasts with its aromatic nature. This is why the rich taste of red fruits in the Domaine Wardy Private Selection perfectly pairs with the salty potent taste of roquefort.
