Vineyards of Morocco

Morocco, a land of wine!
The wine was restored after the independence of Morocco, when the French settlers arrived in the country. The best wines come from the Meknes-Fez region, the Atlas Mountains. Specialty of the country is gray wine – a white wine from red grapes. Join us for this amazing journey!
