About B for Bacchus

B for Bacchus is a wine education & promotion platform dedicated to wine stories from across the Fertile Crescent created by me, Farrah Berrou.

I stumbled into the world of wine after working in retail for my family business in Beirut, Lebanon. My dad/boss put me in charge of running the specialty/alcohol floor when I didn't know anything about wine & spirits. I had to figure things out fast. I enrolled in some online classes and quickly became enamored in all things vino - especially when it came to wine stories of our region, historical or current. I built B for Bacchus and began hosting wine classes within our retail space. In October 2019, the B for Bacchus podcast was launched so that these stories could reach even more people across the world.

By joining the Bacchus Membership, you will be making it possible for me to continue researching/writing/editing/hosting the podcast, my written work, and overall content creation related to the wine of Lebanon and beyond.


As a thank you for joining, once your first payment goes through, I'll mail a Bacchus swag envelope so you can join the party in style. It includes a personal note to you and some little Bacchus-themed goodies.

Every season, you'll get a curated seasonal mailer that includes an envelope featuring 4-5 artworks in the form of postcards/paper goods that fall under the theme of wine & culture. They are diverse; ranging from graphic design to Arabic lettering to photography to illustration, etc. Each participating artist is credited and they are compensated as they see fit.

These mailers also include a copy of Aanab, a mini-newspaper that I write and design. It is an extension of the online newsletters I send out on a monthly basis (you will also receive an extra monthly newsletter as a member). Aanab is a closer look at one particular wine topic, thoughts relating to current events and culture, as well as a list of bottles that I've opened in the 3 months leading up to each publication. If you're interested in purchasing a digital PDF of former issues of Aanab, please visit the B for Bacchus Shop.


Please note: Because Patreon charges you at the beginning of each month, mail will be sent after at least one monthly membership payment has been processed. Seasonal mailers are sent out in late February, May, August, and November in order to be received by March, June, September, and December. For example, if you subscribe in May, your swag envelope will be sent once June’s payment has gone through and you will receive the September seasonal mailer as long as payments are received successfully until August.
