Domaine des Tourelles
The Domaine des Tourelles winery was founded in 1868 and was the first commercial winery in Lebanon. Soon the company flourished and there was a lot of demand for its products. The good reputation grew and soon the company won gold, silver and bronze medals in various prestigious international wine contests. Today, Domaine des Tourelles is classified as the 'most seductive winery in Lebanon' by the Financial Times.
The winery was built in 1868 with stone walls and wooden ceilings, exactly according to traditional Lebanese architecture. Over the years, the company has expanded, until it underwent its last change in the twentieth century (red bricks on the roof) and this is to this day the final form. The concrete barrels (very rare in Lebanese wineries) provide the best biological conditions for a natural process. This ensures that the wine retains its authentic taste of the Lebanese 'terroir'.
