When we visited beautiful Lebanon, we toured a winery called Ixsir in the mountains of Batroun. It is located on a most breathtaking site, the building itself formerly a home for two families. It has stone walls and a fascinating spiral staircase leading you down to the wine production area. The entryway houses this lovely old pottery. I read online that CNN labels this winery one of the greenest buildings in the world. The wine was very good too, with no added sulphites, but unfortunately we could only bring one bottle home.
