Sahadi Spirits and Chateau Ksara
Exciting things have been happening at Sahadi’s! We are thrilled to bring you Sahadi Spirits, our new bottle shop featuring wines and spirits from the Middle East and the Mediterranean region. These regions produce an impressive variety of wines using old-fashioned farming techniques. New innovative wines using some of the world’s oldest indigenous grapes make this an exciting time to enter the wine world.
A while back my family and I had the luxury of visiting Chateau Ksara in the Bekka Valley. It is one of the oldest wineries in Lebanon. It was wonderful to see the vineyard and taste familiar and unfamiliar varieties. Hearing their longstanding traditions and seeing the caves was a great experience. We are delighted to have their wines and ksarak stocked in our shop and available to ship.
For years we have been asked to sell the beautiful Lebanese bottles we are featuring in our wine bar, but regulations prevented those sales, so we decided to branch out with Sahadi Spirits. The best part of this for us is being able to pair wines with our amazing snack selections as well as our impressive cheese department. The curation alone brings a smile to my face when customers get the perfect pairing.
Hope to see you at the Grand Opening on April 23rd (RSVP here) when quite a few of our favorite producers and importers will be pouring and speaking about their wines -- and of course, we will be passing appetizers. Cheers!
