Domaine des Tourelles Red is from one of the oldest and most highly acclaimed wineries in the Bekaa Valley. Blended from old vine Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cinsault, Domaine des Tourelles Red is a rich, fruity red with ripe plum and cherry fruit and silky tannins.
Domaine des Tourelles is one of the longest established and most highly acclaimed wineries in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. Founded in 1868 by French adventurer François-Eugène Brun, Domaine de Tourelles was the first commercial cellar in Lebanon producing wines, arak and other spirits. In 2000, the estate was bought by descendants of Brun's Lebanese wife, Nayla Kanaan Issa-el-Khoury and Elie F. Issa. It is run by their children, Faouzi Issa (winemaker), Christaine Issa and Emile Issa-el Khoury. This young and dynamic trio have decided to proudly apply similar artisan winemaking skills and traditions to their handcrafted wines - this includes minimum intervention in the vineyards and cellar, use of indigenous natural yeasts, no fining or filtering, and only very small amounts of sulphur. Domaine des Tourelles - a prestigious and traditional property classified amongst the finest boutique wineries of the Middle East.
Domaine des Tourelles Red is perfect with rich, lamb casseroles or a spicy chickpea harissa stew.
