What did we find in our wine subscription UK? Two delightful bottles and wineries that we were new to us.
We are cautious trying new varieties so wine subscription boxes are great for us. Someone else does the thinking and gives us curated suggestions!

2018 Massaya White
The bottles white was a five -blend from Lebanon! I’ve never had wine from Lebanon but my husband assures me that some of the world’s earliest wine comes from that region.
And so it said on the wine notes! Wine has been made in Lebanon for 6000 years. Winemaking historically has had difficulty because of the ongoing conflicts in the area. The owner of this vineyard in the foothills of Mt Lebanon stayed on his vineyard during the last conflict keeping his grapes safe.
The wine notes suggested pairing with a pasta or even a chilli dish. The wine complimented our simple pasta dish beautifully – a good wine can elevate even a basic dish into a special meal.
The notes also said to try a white rioja if I liked this wine. So that’s on my list next…
2010 Cara Sucia
Although I am familiar with Argentinan red wines, the Cara Sucia was a surprise. Unlike the traditional Malbec you associate with Argentina though, the Cara Sucia is a light and elegant red wine. It’s made from a cereza grape which is a pink skinned grape that is a cross between muscat and listan negro grapes.
The wine notes suggested that this wine is usually paired with a Choripan Argentinian sandwich (barbecued chorizo, chimichurri and aubergines). Delicious. But we were out of Choripan in our North London kitchen so we paired it with a vegetarian paella. Yes, scrumptious!
