Lebanon highest altitude vineyards in the Northern Hemisphere,Bekaa,organically grown grapes



These are some of the highest altitude vineyards in the Northern Hemisphere at 3,280 feet above sea level. Benefiting from 240 days of reliable sunshine and the dry climate in the Bekaa where most fungal diseases are not a real threat, all grapes are grown organically.



Our farms close to 100 acres of vineyards, most of which are located in the village of Ammik in the Western Bekaa, while two smaller plots, in the villages of Jdita and Taanayel are in the central Bekaa Valley. Some of the vineyards are owned outright by the winery while others are under long-term contracts. Vines are typically free-standing Gobelet, with a few trellised vineyards surrounding the property. These vineyards boast some of the oldest vines in the valley, reaching up to 70 years in some cases. The harvest is done entirely by hand, with an initial selection done in the vineyards followed by another at the winery.
