About Us

B for Bacchus is a wine education & promotion platform that takes you on a journey through Lebanon’s wine regions, history, and flavors. Regardless of whether you know nothing or everything about wine, all content is meant to be informative yet light & fun. Essentially, B for Bacchus is a one-woman show created by Farrah Berrou.

In October 2019, the B for Bacchus podcast was launched.
This podcast is dedicated to wine stories from across the Fertile Crescent (formerly Levant, Eastern Mediterranean, and the Caucasus).

In mid-2021, Farrah published the first issue of Aanab. It is now an 8-page biannual mini-newspaper designed by Farrah, featuring a long-form essay by her and commissioned work by other talents from the region.

Farrah is a Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW), American Wine Expert (AWE), and Certified WSET Level 2. She has a background in biology, graphic design, and advertising as well as a knack for sharing knowledge of things she’s passionate about. As of 2021, she spends her time between Beirut and Los Angeles, along with her rescue cat, Penny.

Everything she does is geared toward making people love Lebanon & Penny the way she does.
