Justin Keay: Why export is key to Lebanon wine’s long road to recovery

The international response in the aftermath of the August 4 blast in Beirut harbour was fast and effective. For Lebanon’s wine industry the message was simple – buy Lebanese wines so that winemakers there can have hard currency to work with. For it is the financial crisis in Lebanon that is putting the country most at risk now, argues Justin Keay. He talks to the owners of three very different Lebanese wineries – IXSIR, Oumsiyat and Domaine des Tourelles – about the challenges facing them, what is unique about their wines and how exports, particularly to the off trade are a lifeline on the long road to recovery.

The end of domestic wine in 17th century Japan

The end of domestic wine in 17th century Japan

Researchers from Kumamoto University (Japan) have found an Edo period document that clearly indicates the Hosokawa clan, rulers of the Kokura Domain (modern-day Fukuoka Prefecture), completely stopped producing wine in 1632, the year before the shogunate ordered them to move to the Higo Domain (now Kumamoto Prefecture). The researchers believe that the discontinuation of wine production was directly related to this move and because it was considered to be a drink of a religion that was harshly suppressed in Japan at that time, Christianity.
