Since Biblical times, Lebanon has been acclaimed for its prized Bekaa Valley wines. Lebanon’s oldest wineries resumed a 5000-year Phoenician tradition. Today, this ‘’bijou winery’’, nestled between the mountains and the Mediterranean, produces a range of unique wines that capture the spirit of the Levant.
It is no coincidence that the Romans chose the Bekaa Valley as the site for building the temple of Bacchus in homage to their God of wine and grapes. In all Lebanon, the number of wineries went from 5 in 1998 to over 30 nowadays.
Our tour will start with a visit to Domaine des Tourelles. Winner of many international awards, it is the second oldest winery, founded by Francois-Eugène Brun in 1868. Nothing but a visit to its yellow stone and cedar wood cellars can begin to unravel the mystery of this age-old family estate.
Our next stop will be in Chateau Heritage. Chateau Heritage Winery in Kabb-Elias is a new class of Lebanese wine that is created from a unique selection of the finest grapes of the Bekaa Valley. It stands to be the best representation of true Lebanese wine. Will visit the cave, taste wine, and meet the local habitants.
There, will have lunch in a very special place, Domaine de Chouchene restaurant.
After lunch, we will return to the bus to go and visit Massaya. Massaya, whose name is Arabic, for the delicate beauty of the Bekaa’s twilight, with its French and Lebanese partners. It was for Anis “Arak” in 1994. In 1998, it became for the wine and “Arak’. Will visit it, learn about winemaking, and get to taste its exquisite wine.
On another tour, will have the chance to see other prestigious wineries in the Bekaa valley.
As usual, you will enjoy memorable moments among friends! It’ll be great!
