Latest Discoveries from Hannibal - Lebanon launching 1st June

Hannibal will be back from his latest expedition in a couple of weeks' time,  ready to launch our Lebanese range on 1st June.

Right now, he's making his way through  Lebanon, towards the Bekaa Valley on the east side of the country.  Bekaa is one of the oldest wine regions in the world, dating back over 5,000 years and it's said that this is where Jesus turned water into wine.


The Bekaa Valley is very much the fruit 'n veg garden of Lebanon.   With the less fertile northern limits reserved for nomadic cattle grazing, the more southerly reaches are renowned for an array of vegetables and cotton.  

And somewhat controversially, it's hard to ignore the fields of opium poppies...!  Enough said.

But none of this is relevant to Hannibal's travels - he's focussed on discovering the best wines that Lebanon can offer.  Thanks to the work of Jesuit monks in the mid 19th century, many of the best Lebanese vineyards are planted with French grape varietals - Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Genache, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are found in abundance.  And with the best wineries embracing modern techniques, it's not difficult to understand why Lebanon has the capability of producing wines of world renowned quality
