In this second instalment of The Wild Side of Wine, Peter ventures into Lebanon, the country that, ‘gave the gift of wine to the world.’ Much of today’s wine world owes its origins to Lebanon’s ancient Phoenician traders and the country’s epic wine history is captured in breathtaking fashion at the Temple of Bacchus in Baalbek, near the Syrian border. And yet history has not been kind to this volatile region: Peter explores how wine is helping heal the scars of war, and how vinous heroes battled through conflict to make their precious ferments. Along the way we encounter playful goats, cluster bombs, mighty cedar forests, a 2,000-year-old Roman cellar – plus Peter tries his hand at making tabbouleh, orgiastic dancing and balancing rosé wine while paddle boarding.
