The B in B for Bacchus stands for the various parts of Lebanon that all link back to Bacchus, the Roman god of wine: Bekaa, Bhamdoun, Batroun, Baalbeck, Byblos, and even Beirut in some ways.
Lebanon’s wine industry is booming but still very underrepresented globally, and even locally to a certain extent. Although small in comparison to the mighty wine regions across Europe and the US, Lebanon’s wine world is a rich, competitive community with new producers mushrooming every year. There are a few established names but there are so many more families with stories untold and bottles unpopped.

I can’t recommend this class enough. Farrah is beyond knowledgeable and extremely passionate about every aspect. I thought I knew a fair amount about wine but Farrah takes it to the next level with her deep understanding! Whether you are an entry level or an expert there’s a little something for everyone!Eli Kehdy
I find myself counting the days until the next podcast or course. Farrah is an amazingly passionate and engaging speaker. Her content always has the right amount of facts, interesting anecdotes, wit and humor! I’ve finished listening to all her episodes and finally got the chance to attend the history of wine course and I am nothing short of amazed!!! Farrah please don’t keep us waiting too long for the next onesAlex Irani
I’ve lived in Lebanon a long time and I’ve been on many tours of vineyards here and in Napa in the US. I STILL learned new things from this wine tasting presentation! Farrah was engaging, soo knowledgeable and the pace of information and tastings was perfect. I can’t wait to go on a tour with her!Elizabeth Dyer
