About the same land-mass as Wales, what Lebanon lacks in size it makes up for in cultural diversity and culinary prowess.
Nestled in the fertile Levant in the east of the Med, Lebanon has its gastronomic roots in Ottoman cuisine but also draws heavily from neighbouring Syria, Palestine and Iran, as well as its more recent French colonial history. Think olive oil, lamb, aubergine, spices, pickles and nuts with a touch of the European.
Lebanese wine is mainly grown in the fertile, low-lying Bekaa valley, From dry and fruity rosé's to buttery whites and bold, savoury reds, this small nation's wine stands tall alongside the Old World heavyweights.
We run pop-up supper clubs that celebrate the world's forgotten wine regions. Countries like Lebanon, Georgia and Moldova, as well as regions such as Alsace, have been producing stunning wines for hundreds and in some cases thousands of years, yet are often left under-appreciated in today's wine world.
Our evenings are part-wine tasting, part-dinner and offer the chance to learn about these forgotten wines and the art of wine pairing, all whilst enjoying inventive global food.
We have held a series of successful dinners in London and Hove, and have set our sights on Cambridge as our next destination.
