Wines from Lebanon

Lebanon is among the oldest sites of wine production in the world. The Israelite prophet Hosea (780–725 BC) is said to have urged his followers to return to God so that “they will blossom as the vine and fame be like the wine of Lebanon, [and] their fragrance will be like that of Lebanon”.The Phoenicians of its coastal strip were instrumental in spreading wine and viticulture throughout the Mediterranean in ancient times. Despite the many conflicts of the region, the country has an annual production of about 8,500,000 bottles of wine.

Lebanese winemakers have favored French grapes, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Rhone varietals such as Cinsaut, Carignan and Grenache.There are also grapes that are specific and indigenous to Lebanon such as Obaideh and Merwah
