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.

The overall structure will remain as is in that you will still receive 4 mailers a year - in March, June, September, and December. The difference is that they will be of two types.

March & September are "solo mailers" in that they feature new items that are to be sold on the Bacchus shop before they're for sale to the public, like postcards and/or stickers or whatever else comes along, plus the usual note from me and the occasional surprise item or donation to a trusted organization.

June & December are "collaborative mailers" in that they include an issue of Aanab, which is now biannual (previously quarterly) that I write and design. It has been expanded so the issues are now a little bigger (not a huge Sunday Times, it's still a thin newspaper) and thus have more room (and funding) to feature original work from other writers and artists. Aanab is a closer look at one particular wine topic and other thoughts relating to current events and culture. If you're interested in purchasing a digital PDF of former issues of Aanab, please visit the B for Bacchus Shop. It is an extension of the online newsletters I send out on a monthly basis - as a member, you will also receive an extra monthly newsletter! 


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.
