My independent guide to Lebanese wines (2nd ed.)

I have long maintained that Thursday evenings are the best – Friday and the weekend being just around the corner – so why not come to my book launch at Antoine’s in the Beirut Souks on February 7. Taste as many Lebanese wines as you want and, if you feel inclined, buy my new guide.Wine signature

A word from my publisher

“Turning Point Books is pleased to announce the release of Michael Karam’s Lebanese Wines: An Independent Guide (2nd Edition). It contains all you need to know about Lebanon’s major wines and wineries, as well as its significant wine heritage. The guide also lists and explains all wine grapes grown in Lebanon, and includes useful tasting terms and a wine glossary. For fans of varietals there is even a list of wines by the grape.

When it was published in 2010, Michael Karam’s Lebanese Wines was described by British wine celebrity Tim Atkin MW as “invaluable” for anyone wanting to get an overview of the modern Lebanese wine industry. The second edition is even more comprehensive, featuring more producers and color photographs by Norbert Schiller, who collaborated with Michael in the award-winning Wines of Lebanon.

Above all, the book highlights the energy of Lebanon’s wine industry and reflects the increasing quality of the wines themselves. Featuring over 200 labels from nearly 40 wineries, including many previous vintages from the premium wines, the guide also encourages us to go out there and try wines from lesser-known Lebanese producers.

Michael Karam’s Lebanese Wines is an essential reference for the wine professional and the amateur enthusiast, as well as those lovers of Lebanese wines who simply want the best reference when choosing their favorite drop.”
