BRINGING AMAZING WINE FROM HEROIC, SUSTAINABLE SMALL GROWERS FROM AROUND THE WINE WORLD, £5.95 SHIPPING UK WIDE ON WINES
Lebanon is perhaps the oldest of the Old World countries, nestled at the eastern extremity of the Mediterranean, bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south. Scholars are confident that the early Lebanese created the vine and viticulture around 7000BC in the region, though it was between 3000BC and 330BC that Phoenicia made the region’s wines notable through their export to Egypt, Cyprus, Greece and Rome as well as what is now Sardinia and Spain. The wine was so revered as to be immortalised in the hieroglyphs of Egyptian tombs.
The largest winery – Chateau Ksara winery based in the Bekaa Valley. Founded in 1857 by Jesuit monks, it is considered the oldest commercial winery in the country. The next largest winery is Chateau Kefraya though their wines are harder to find. Chateau Musar is perhaps the most well known producer outside of the Lebanon and was founded in 1930. There are several other significant wineries including Massaya, Domaine Wardy, Chateau Marsyas, Karam Winery (notable for being the first winery in Lebanon’s southern region), Chateau Heritage, and more recently IXSIR.
