Built in 1868 with stone walls and wood ceilings following the traditional Lebanese architecture, the winery knew several expansions throughout the years. In the 20th century, red bricks were added on the roof and the edifice took its final form that remains till today. The winery was built following an intelligent ancestral design that takes advantage of the best outdoors’ factors (keeping the ideal ambient temperature all year long). The concrete vats (very rare in Lebanese wineries) provide the best biological conditions for a natural wine making process; which preserves the authentic taste of Lebanon’s “terroir”. Today, private visits are organized to the winery where the guests can admire its unique collection of old machines that are worth of a museum.
