Extend your knowledge about Lebanon’s heritage

A Wine Story

Lebanon is among the oldest sites of wine production in the world. The Phoenicians were instrumental in spreading wine and viticulture throughout the Mediterranean in ancient times. The number of wineries in Lebanon went from 5 in 1998 to more than 35 nowadays producing around 8.5 million bottles annually. Lebanese winemakers favour French grapes, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Rhone varietals such as Cinsaut, Carignan and Grenache.

However, Lebanon has also a rich heritage of indigenous grapes namely Obeideh and Merwah. Some white wines are a blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Muscat, and Obeideh. The majority of the wineries are in the Bekaa valley, but also extend throughout the regions in the North, Kesserwan, Mount-Lebanon and the South.

Let our Concierge team organsie your day trip to discover and taste Lebanese wineries.
