20. JUST A DROP - The Lost Glass and Cigarette

JUST A DROP: Less than 10 minutes about a wine topic, some news, and updates.

Once again, Farrah went a little over the 10-minute mark for this one. After stumbling upon 1924's lost silent film "WINE," Farrah investigated if there are any wine films from this side of the world and she visited Abboudi Abou Jaoude for some help. This is what she discovered.

Translation of the clip of Azza's dialogue:
"You made her go back to alcohol. Don't forget that Hoda was an artist. Don't forget that she was the light of the stage. The day she married you, she was the most famous woman in Egypt. Why would she give all that up to live between 4 walls? Because she loves you."
