– I’m not a total wine snob, but I do enjoy trying wines around the world. I love how food and wine compliment each other, and the way a glass of sauvignon blanc tastes on a hot day and the warmth of a full bodied red in the winter.
Rice & Palm Wine
Harry returned an hour later with 2 gas cans full of a pearl white looking substance. Palm wine is made from the sap of a coconut tree and you only have about a day to drink it before it ferments into a very strong vinegar taste. Once it ages, its made to use local spirits.
Grape Wine of Indonesia
The funniest thing happened. I was at Keramas Beach in Bali, looking to escape the crowds of Ubud. I chose this place for its off the grid feel, since there wasn’t much to do but relax on the nearly empty beach. When I opened google maps to explore nearby places, I saw a winery right across from where I was staying. How is it that I happened to be staying right next to one of the 5 wineries in all of Indonesia? Sababay Winery had opened its doors to the public about a week prior. Even more ironic, they had just started a tour when I walked over. You can learn more about Sababay Winery by watching the video below:
