Let’s talk about… The diversity of the terroir of the Lebanese Mountains

May 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Let’s talk about… The diversity of the terroir of the Lebanese Mountains, with Gabi Rivero and Jad El Esta

Join our presenters from leading new-wave producer Ixsir to explore the ancient and modern story of wine in Lebanon’s exceptional terroir, where vineyards rising to 1,800 metres are among the highest in the northern hemisphere.

As they highlight the country’s 5,000-year vinous history, Gabi, winemaker and co-founder, and Jad, CEO, will explain how Ixsir has undertaken detailed studies of historic vineyard sites across Lebanon and has focused on replanting the best with appropriate grape varieties as well as exploiting existing old vines. It is the complex, multi-faceted terroir, they say, that decides which wines the company makes.

This should be a fascinating insight into the latest approaches in a country re-emerging as an important wine producer.

To learn more please log in on Friday 19th May at 2pm BST. The session, including Q&As, will last for approximately one hour. To join, follow the link below. Guests will be very welcome, but please let Andrea know their names.
