wine country / morocco

A winery in the hills outside Essaouira, growing grapes of the southern Rhône. Camels and donkeys are used for much of the work here and the wines are reputed to be the best in Morocco.

Also in the area are specialist olive and fruit growers as well as honey makers whose produce is often available at stalls by the sides of the road. As in all of Morocco, one is never far away from a glass of sugary mint tea.
