Most wine history books agree 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, Jiban Elias Touma established one of the first wineries and distilleries in Lebanon in the small town of Kab-elias in the Bekaa Valley to produce wine and Arak the national Lebanese drink.
Continuing in the family tradition of his father and his grand fathers, Dr. Dargham Elias Touma has combined the winemaking art of his heritage with a PhD in food and beverage science specialising in the "Grand Vin", the high quality wines that age. Thus was the birth of "HERITAGE", a new class of Lebanese Wine.
Tasting Notes: Intense red colour with fantastic nose of jam and black fruits with fine herbs. Superb palate with a perfect equilibrium of black fruits, coffee and cocoa. Very impressive length.
