New Jordanian Wine Featured in
It is believed that Jordan's local wine history dates back to Nabatean times and Jesus may have drunk locally produced wine during the last supper. As original Jordanian grape varieties were lost, today local winemakers use imported varieties brought mostly from Chile and Italy. Lately, the quality of Jordanian wine has considerably improved and you might sample a couple of decent reds and whites produced by Omar Zumot's and Haddad wineries. The most popular labels include "Saint George", "Machaerus", "Mount Nebo," and "Jordan River." New Jordanian wine is available between late September and October.
