Lebanon, travel

Beqaa Valley, Lebanon: In vino vita.

Famous Latin phrase In vino veritas (in wine [there is the] truth), could be rephrased to In vino vita (in wine [there is] life) when it comes to the Beqaa Valley.

The Beqaa Valley is a fertile valley in east Lebanon, and today it remains Lebanon’s most important farming region. The valley is home to Lebanon’s famous vineyards and wineries. Wine making is a tradition that goes back 6000 years there.

Here are some of the grapes picking photos I collected around the web, so you can get a better impression of wine scented life in Beqaa Valley.
