Clos des Baobabs: The First Senegalese Wine

It may have seemed a somewhat foolhardy gamble on the part of two French expats, but  “Clos des Baobabs” wine has been authorized for sale by the Senegalese authorities. With a limited edition of just 1000 bottles, this 14% grenache wine is currently only for “the curious”. Production has already completely sold out, according to the Facebook page of the daring winegrowers, who say they are no longer accepting new orders: “Because of the great interest in our first sales, we are unable to respond to any new orders.”
