Winemaking

Lebanon produces 9 million bottles (9000 tons) annually.
At least dozen new cultivars were been introduced to the country in the early-mid-90s.

Today there are 2,120 ha cultivated for the production of wine.
Some producers are experimenting with new terroir
notably in Batroun, Kfifane, Bhamdoun, Richmaya, Majdel Maouche and Jezzine as well as areas in the Eastern Bekaa
but most of the viticulture for wine grapes takes place in the Western Bekaa and the hills above Zahleh.

Domestic consumption has increased to 5 million bottles per year, out of which 2 million bottles are imported.
