Why Cloud Nine?
like to reflect sitting in my garden in Jezzine, glass of wine in hand. I keep having the same flashbacks to defining moments during my early years as a pilot. Most of my fond memories took place in my favorite bar Cloud Nine, located in the heart of Beirut. Being there at that time gave me a lot of pleasure and after blending my dry white wine, drinking it gave me similar pleasure. It was then that I decided to name it “Cloud Nine”. As a pilot, the clouds were my second home and my lucky number is nine. Everything fit! I hope this fresh, crisp, fruity and dry white wine will give you equally pleasurable moments. Have a sip, close your eyes and enjoy it! – Captain Habib Karam
