Discover the wines of Lebanon at the London Wine Fair

Wines of Lebanon is hosting a masterclass on Tuesday 17th May at 1.45pm at the 2011 London Wine Fair.  

Take a tour of Lebanon during this tutored tasting with Tim Atkin MW and Lebanese wine expert, Michael Karam.

Tim will pick his top wines from eight different wineries in a tutored tasting showcasing the different styles, grape varieties and terroirs within this small country.  Lebanese wine expert Michael Karam will explain Lebanon’s rich winemaking history – from 5000BC to the present day  - showing how centuries of tradition have been harnessed with modern winemaking techniques to create what is arguably Lebanon’s greatest export.

Tim Atkin MW comments: “Lebanon is one of the wine world's great secrets. I'm delighted to have the chance to talk about some of my favourites after an inspiring trip to the country, where I was captivated by the people, the architecture, the landscape and of course the best wines.”
Michael Karam is a Beirut-based author and journalist.  He has published two books on Lebanese wine: Wines of Lebanon (Saqi Books, 2005) and Michael Karam’s Lebanese Wines 2011: A comprehensive guide (Vinehouse Media, 2010).
