    I think @Isabella knows what I'm talking about, considering she lives in France. Lebanese wine is grape juice compared to French wine.
    It's only hyped because of good marketing tactics.

    Jesuits taughts the Lebos how to make wine, but they still don't know sh-t.
    Lebanese wine is not that bad in my opinion, I like some bottles, it's comparable to French wine around 8 to 12 euros. I've had a lot better but I've also had a lot worst.

    My experience with the industry is limited to a course I took back in college on wine and Lebanese wineries, and I gotta say they're not that bad either! We've been producing wine for 8000 years in the region, and it's by far our number one export, unless they legalise hash, so encourage your local production :p

    The Israelite prophet Hosea is said to have urged his followers to return to God so that "they will blossom as the vine, and their fragrance will be like the wine of Lebanon"

    They do not rank higher than French and Italian wines.
    They're on the same par as Portuguese and Spanish wines. Good enough, but not the kind of bottles you would get to impress your in-laws. Know what I mean?

    And awards are just marketing tactics. Hell, Elissa won an international music award, and I've heard a goat sing better than she does.

    But that's not bad for a tiny country such as Lebanon if we are to go by your ranking. How many wineries do we have 30 tops? Let's say 50 lol compare that to the thousands in France and Italy and you'll see why it's an unfair comparison. Heyde not to mention the limited resources specifically regarding agricultural lands.

    People make California wine in their backyards that wins more awards :) Some of them sing while making it too :)

    California wineries put French and Italian wines to shame every minute of every day :)

    It is because the ranking system is BS :)
    Lol whatever you need to tell yourself! The only country worthy enough to compete against French wine is Italy and they're still second :p! You should know your place, behind Spain, and if you want to take a wine giant on better aim for the one right in front of you first :p

    Next you'll tell me Wisconsin cheese is better than anything produced in France ?

    French wine is overrated these days. Its glory days have long passed. Like anything French pride it is a relic of a distant past. :)
    I bet you even MarCon prefers California wines :)

    Next time you drink a California wine, savor it and think of JL :)

    There are currently more than 50 active wineries in Lebanon according to a Wikipedia reference, but I'd guess it's a good bit more than that based on the wine festivals I've went to. Maybe 150-200?

    In comparison, check this guy's numbers out:

    Sure that's why the United States is the biggest market for French wines, because their local wines are so much better ?

    No it is because it is a large market with tons of disposable income :)

    I beg to differ... no amount of marketing skills can hype up crap wine... we have some very good wines, kefraya, musar, ksara, clos st. Thomas, ixir, etc... some very good ones

    like all other countries, there are good and bad ones. California has some great labels, South Africa, South America as well... lebanon has some great wines as well. Compared to the size of the country, the resources and the number of wineries, I think we do pretty well.
