Postcard from Lebanon

What is the definition of a good wine? It should start and end with a smile. ~ William Sokolin

(Sheep grazing with their shepherds–in regular street clothes–just beyond the vineyards of Ksara. Old world and new, Lebanon’s ironies. Our wine started and ended in smiles that day, with sheep).

    Love those sheep! Hate the thought of eating them, actually!

      Yes, it’s a pity that we do that…

    They are lovely, giving a sense of warmth and comfort.
