Executive followed workers at Château Kefraya on August 22 busy harvesting grapes for the winery’s yearly white wine production. While Kefraya has so far been spared, bad weather has affected harvests at other wineries in Lebanon. One of the worst hit was Domaine de Baal, which experienced heavy hailstorms on September 15 that ruined more than 50 percent of its crop. Despite these unfortunate circumstances, however, wine production and tourism has been on a steady rise in Lebanon and wine producers and drinkers alike have cause to be optimistic.
