Organic Winetasting at Zumot Winery & Vineyards
While Jordan—and the Middle East in general—isn't widely known for wines, Zumot Winery & Vineyards is a legend in the industry. Not only do Omar Zumot and his staff create delicious Saint George-label wines from a variety of grapes, they do it in a sustainable way without the aid of chemicals or sulfur. While large groups can have a tasting catered for an epicurian wine dinner, walk-in visitors are able to enjoy tastings paired with cheese and bread. Some varietals you can sample include a merlot with flavors of plum, bacon, cashew, toffee, and tobacco; a buttery chardonnay with hints of vanilla, green olives, and citrus; and a red velvet graciano with flavors of wild berries, ripe plums, and eucalyptus.
