Most wine history books agree that there is no doubt wine was first made in the Middle East. Noah, Naboth, Christ, St. Paul, the great Roman Temple at Baalbeck, are all but few of the evidence that support this fact.
Theories even exist to suggest that a large number of red and white grape varieties were distributed as far as Europe by the Phoenicians from what is now Lebanon, and are ancestors to many of the grape varieties today.
And so it was that in 1888, the Touma Family established one of the first wineries and distilleries in Lebanon in the small town of Kab-elias of the Bekaa-Valley to produce wine and Arak Touma, the national Lebanese drink.
Continuing in the success, tradition, and experience gained by the Touma family with their Arak Touma, the Heritage Winery was established and released its first modern wines in 1997.
Heritage is a family produced wine that preserves the traditions of wine making while mastering the state-of-the-art technologies in the production of varietal wines.
Heritage is a new class of Lebanese wine that is created from a unique selection of the finest grapes of the Bekaa-Valley. It stands to be the best representation of a true Lebanese wine.
Tasting Notes: Dark red Color. The very fine nose shows remarkable complexity with aromas that recall truffles, caramel and forest fruits. Beautiful and elegant balance on the palate with a perfect finish.
