The Lebanese Ministry of Agriculture in cooperation with the Arab-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Ghorfa) as well as the Lebanese Embassy in Berlin hosted the Lebanese Wine Day on May 5th, 2014.
Over 30 producers from all over Lebanon showcased their wines at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Berlin. The event was an opportunity for wine professionals and all others to discover an exciting range of wines from one of the world’s oldest wine producing nations.
Lebanon has, in total, over 40 wineries and produces around 8.5 million bottles a year. The industry might be small, but the emphasis has always been on quality and Lebanon is now able to compete internationally by making sought-after, premium quality wines from the Bekaa Valley, the historic heartland of wine production, as well as newer regions such as Batroun in the North, Mount Lebanon, and Jezzine in the South.
