Lebanese Wine

Lebanon is the country of some of the oldest wine making efforts in the world, readers of religious scripture will usually note many references to the wine of the country in rather reverential terms. Great civilisations such as those of the Greeks and Rome were said to have adopted a substantial amount of their wine making practices and even religious rituals that had to do with wine from various regions in the country.

Although wine making was very much an ancient art in Lebanon it came into great decline centuries ago as the country became part of Muslim caliphate and wine production reduced greatly.

Current wine making in Lebanon today has led to a variety of the wines to be produced from grapes of French origin, however Lebanon makes excellent wines with a number of its indigenous grapes.
