When one thinks of wine producing regions, Lebanon is at the top of the list. Yet, few places in the world have a longer tradition of wine-making. Wine has been made in Lebanon for at least 5,000 years since the Phoenicians domesticated grapes. Lebanon was, of course, part of the biblical land of Canaan. Jesus changed water into wine there at the wedding of Cana. Thus Lebanon is among the oldest sites of wine production in the world. It has annual production of about 600, 000 cases of wine.
