Currently creating a stir on the international market, Lebanese wine is the product of a rich heritage dating back 5,000 years. Despite Ottoman domination, regional turmoil, civil conflict and religious intolerance, Lebanon has consistently produced world-class wines. Michael Karam and Norbert Schiller take us on a journey from the Bekaa Valley to the little vineyards of Mount Lebanon. At once a wine guide and cultural history, this extensively illustrated book is a valuable reference for wine buffs, travellers and casual readers alike. It is a long-overdue tribute to one of the world's oldest winemaking regions.
