st. john commandaria

I've always envied my brother because his job takes him to exotic places I've never been to. Well, maybe UK is not exotic, but Dubai and Cyprus sure is to me!

To him, traveling for work is nothing to look forward to. But for me, I always can't wait to see what treats he brings back for the family.

His trip to the Eurasian island country in the Eastern Mediterranean this time introduced him to some of the local wines. He liked it so much that he decided to buy back 2 bottles for us to try.

I must say my brother has pretty good taste. I really loved this wine! In fact it reminded me so much of the dessert wine Imm and I had after being treated to a home-cooked meal in Milan.

Having tasted Sicilian and Cypriot sweet fruity wine, I don't think I can ever go back to sour and dry red wine!

welcome to my world :) I dont even drink generic red wine anymore. If I do, I would go for a Riesling, Pinot Noir or Rose Wine. :)
