The UVL was founded in 1997, one year after Lebanon joined the Office International de la Vigne et du vin (OIV).
The objective of the UVL is to consolidate and build on Lebanon’s image as a wine producing country by highlighting its proud history and promoting its potential.
The UVL gives a voice to Lebanon’s wine producers, brings them together in one harmonized entity and defends their interests.
It has developed legitimacy for Lebanon’s export ambitions within the EU and other international markets such as the US and Canada.
The UVL successfully lobbied for a new wine law which was passed in 2000 and is lobbying for a formation of a National Wine Institute.
The following wineries are members of the UVL and are participating in this campaign in the UK.
