Wine tourism and other stuff

As I write, 25 clients from Arblaster and Clarke (http://www.winetours.co.uk), the up-market wine tour operator, are in Lebanon on the company’s first outing in these parts. I really hope they have a unique experience because more of the same can only strengthen Lebanon’s presence on the global wine map. The positive feedback should make its way back to the UK wine trade, where I am still mystified why more importers don’t have at least one Lebanese wine in their portfolio.

That’s about it for now. Off to England next week for the Lebanese winemakers road. I will tell all when I get back on November 28.

In the meantime I have attached links to two articles I wrote recently on what needs to be done to promote Lebanese wine.  Enjoy!
