Lebanese wine

The wine industry of Lebanon: $25 million a year, of which $10 million are from exports. 7 million bottles a year, of which 3 million are exported.

I like Lebanese wine. 320 sunshine days per year make a difference. And I like the ratio between locally consumed and exported: the Lebanese drink their wine, they don't just produce it for export, and this is a great thing.

Woww...what a revelation, you must have thought a lot about it before you came up with this conclusion!!!

hmm, not sure I see a 'conclusion'. Just an observation, which is the prerogative of any blogger and the point of most blogs. This one offers more substantive content, and more considered commentary, than most.

I'm not personally a huge fan of Lebanese wine, but I could go with RZ's 'like'.

I can find the Ksara and Kefraya here in Montreal. Whenever I have guests, I always have Lebanese wine and they are always impressed. However, the supply is not continuous.

We visited the Ksara caves in 2005. Is it true that they are natural caves ?

Yes, they're natural.
