Featuring Wines of Lebanon at Food Blogger Connect

It might be called Food Blogger Connect, but good food is even better with great wine!

That’s why we’re delighted to be teaming up this year with Wines of Lebanon (@LebanonWines) a campaign to raise the profile of Lebanese wines in the UK.

 

 

 

They will be offering a variety of reds, whites, and roses from Chateau KsaraChateau St ThomasDomaine des Tourelles and IXSIR every night, all night during the #FBC12 Market & Social Playground hours.

 While so much of the press emanating from the region might be about despots and dictators – after all ‘it’s easier to sell terrorism than tourism in the news’ – Lebanon remains one of the most misunderstood, yet captivating, countries in the world.

With a rich tapestry of culture and history, liberal attitudes and wonderful people, it’s also one of the oldest wine making cultures in the world. Indeed, the Phoenicians began tending vines over 5,000 years ago! Today it’s home to a burgeoning industry with some 40 vineyards producing about eight million bottles a year. What’s more, Lebanese wines continue to enjoy a growing reputation on the international stage.

So, to quote from award winning author Michael Karam, while ‘the image of Lebanon is still guys with guns and beards, the wine producers are now starting to tell people that we’re a wine-producing country. [Indeed] Lebanese wine could be the sexiest in the world!’ Want to find out for yourself? Well, join us at #FBC12 and get to see and taste another side of the Middle East which doesn’t always make it into the news!
