About our Estate
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 the art of wine. It also benefits from abundant water springs and plenty of sun during most of the year, as well as a great terroir. The high levels of lime and some red clay guarantee the high quality of the wine produced in the Bekaa Valley.
At 1200 meters high, located between the Mount-Lebanon mountains, and 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.
Each year the calcareous soil, the manual harvesting, the organic processes we follow and which fully respect the life cycles of both the soil and vineyard, allow us to create one red and one white reflecting the distinctiveness of this beautiful Mediterranean soil.
Our Return Policy is very simple: If you don't like the wine you ordered from us, tell us, send it back to us and we will either replace it for you or reimburse the purchase price to you. Because we believe life is too short to drink wine you don't like.
HOWEVER, we are not responsible for damage caused to the wine due to the weather; heat or cold. If the weather is hot or cold, we urge that you either ask us to hold the wine(s) for you or order overnight shipping.
