Description

Details

Domaine Des Tourelles was founded in 1868 by French adventurer François-Eugène Brun and is one of the longest established and most highly acclaimed wineries in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley. This place has history. It was the first commercial cellar in Lebanon producing wines, arak and other spirits. Today the estate is run by three siblings Faouzi Issa, Christaine Issa and Emile Issa-el Khoury. This young and dynamic trio have introduced a handful of practices in the vineyards and cellar including the use of indigenous natural yeasts, no fining or filtering, and only very small amounts of sulphur. These techniques, twinned with fruit from ancient vineyards and a winery perfect for hands-off winemaking, make Domaine des Tourelles one of the finest boutique wineries in the Middle East.

Vineyards
The grapes are grown at an altitude of 1,050m above sea level on 15-20 year old vines with gravelous and limestone soils.

Vinification
Grapes are 100% manually harvested with traditional vinification in stainless steel tanks, fermentation over 10 days. After blending the wine undergoes a gentle clarification. Grape varieties include Viognier, Chardonnay, Obeidi and Muscat de'Alexandrie.
