The Wild Side of Wine: Lebanon

The Wild Side of Wine sees Peter Richards MW explore cultures and countries all around the world – from a unique perspective. From reviving ancient human history in Georgia to charting an adventurous future in the Chilean desert, Peter dives fearlessly into history, culture, politics and gastronomy. This is a trip not to miss: local wine and food heroes, off the beaten track, tell intriguing tales and answer awkward questions, in doing so revealing a new side to familiar or far-away places. Guaranteed to tantalise the taste buds and inspire wanderlust!

In the three-part mini-series, ‘Lebanon – Bacchus Was Here’, Peter reveals how crucial Lebanon is to wine and wine history: much of today’s wine world owes its origins to Lebanon’s ancient Phoenecian traders, and the country’s epic wine history is captured in breathtaking fashion at the Temple of Bacchus in Baalbek, near the Syrian border. And yet history has not been kind to this volatile region: we explore how wine is helping heal the scars of war, and how vinous heroes battled through conflict to make their precious ferments. Along the way we encounter playful goats, cluster bombs, mighty cedar forests, a 2,000-year-old Roman cellar – plus Peter tries his hand at making tabbouleh, orgiastic dancing and balancing rosé wine while paddle boarding.
