Given today's resignation of President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, I started wondering about the country's wine industry. I've understood that Egypt has produced wine throughout the ages, but how much does the country produce and what does Egyptian wine taste like? Alder Yarrow of Vinography has a great post from 2005 that answers these questions about Egypt's wine culture and much more. The short take is that Egypt's wine is, well, something of an acquired taste with three main producers creating the bulk of the country's wine.
