Domaine des Tourelles Vieilles Vignes Carignan is made by our favourite Lebanese winemaker Faouzi Issa from a small block of 50 year old vines. Pure ripe red fruits with hints of fig and dates, this is a rich smooth yet perfectly balanced red.

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.
