Wine 13

Seeking an unusual wine...

Hi, I'm new to Chowhound but am finding the boards to be fun and interesting.

Years ago, here in Las Vegas, we had an Eritrean restaurant called The Red Sea. The food was incredible, and every time we ate there we had a bottle of a unique honey wine called 'Orit Tej'. I still have one of the empty bottles because I've never stopped looking for it since the restaurant closed. The label is gold and it says it is 'blended, processed, and bottled by Orit Tej Co.' in San Francisco. But Google comes up with nothing but one mention of someone drinking it in a restaurant on Haight Street. Frustrating!

This wine is nothing like mead, which makes me want to puke, or any other honey-type wines I have tried. So if anyone has any information on this wine, I would really appreciate it!
