Having attended a tasting of Lebanese wines with Michael Karam l was amazed at how little l knew about Lebanese wine. The quality and range is truly amazing and this book reinforces the history and production of their wines.
It makes me smile when certain Antipodean wineries advertise that they have been producing wine for 150 years, Lebanon has been doing it for Two Thousand years !
