At a latitude of 34 north, the Bekka Valley in Lebanon is getting close to the southern limit for wine production in the northern hemisphere. Here the vines are grown at altitudes of up to 1,400 metres, where the climate is cooler, the vines are being trained low on the ground and widely spaced to counter the dry and hot conditions. The harvest is early here, with red grapes, such as Cinsault, being picked by hand in the middle of August.
