A gate from Europe to the Near-East, Lebanon prides itself with a history intimately connected to wine. Along Iraq and Armenia, Lebanon has been the cradle of winemaking since the sixth millennium BC with its very own Bacchus temple (Roman god of wine), erected sometime during the first two centuries of our era. Enriched by the knowhow of French missionaries since the nineteenth century, the country of the cedar enjoys an ideal climate for vine growing . It benefits from snow and rainfall during winter, abundant water springs, and plenty of sun during the rest of the year, and most importantly a great terroir.
At 1200 meters high, located on the slopes of the Mount-Lebanon mountains, facing the magnificent Bekaa Valley, the estate has been prospering since the first plantations in 1994. In 2006, after spending many years in Saint-Emilion, Sebastien Khoury the owner and winemaker of Domaine de Baal came back to Lebanon and started building the winery and made the first vintage of the estate.
The limestone and clay soil, the organic processes we follow and which fully respect the life cycles of both the soil and vineyard, along with the low intervention in the cellar, allow us to produce every year fine and elegant wines reflecting this beautiful mediterranean terroir.
