About Us

Welcome to the website of the Union Vinicole du Liban(UVL), Lebanon’s official association of wine producers.

This site outlines the background, mission and activities of the UVL, directs you to the members’ websites and offers other useful data about Lebanon and Lebanese wine.

The UVL was founded in 1997, one year after Lebanon joined the Organisation International de la Vigne et du Vin (OIV).

The objective of the UVL is to consolidate and develop Lebanon’s image as a wine producing country by highlighting its proud history and promoting its potential. The UVL gives voice to Lebanon’s wine producers, uniting them in one harmonized entity and defending their interests. It has developed legitimacy for Lebanon’s export ambitions within the EU and other international markets like the US and Canada.
