One half of your blogging team has just returned from a visit to Morocco. A fascinating and diverse country that has a lot more fertile land than I’d expected. I also encountered some quite drinkable wines from the Meknes and Guerrouane.

In particular, the Guerrouane rosé produced (I think) from the cinsault grape was often welcome at lunch time. We first discovered this wine in a pizzaria in Fes – the pizzas were rather good and made a refreshing change from the frequent tagines!

Another wine producer of note from the Meknes Fes area is Médaillon who produce a cabernet and a cab/merlot (amongst others) that provided a suitable accompaniment to a lamb tagine!
