Piazza, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Drink & Eat to ForgetEthiopian wine? An unlikely pairing of words, for sure, and an unlikely beverage that you may regret having ordered while traveling around this fascinating country. I was at Castelli's, a famous Italian restaurant in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital. The restaurant is a relic from Italy's failed attempt to colonize the African country. The food may be forgettable at Castelli's, but this wine is even more so. Some day, perhaps, "Ethiopia" and "wine" may have a more congruent appeal. Just not any time soon.
