Located in the small town of Kab Elias in the Bekaa-Valley, Chateau Heritage was voted one of ‘The World’s Best 50 Vineyards’, during an event organized by the William Reed Business Media devoted to shedding light on the best wine drinking experiences throughout the planet.
This Lebanese brand won the ‘The Best Vineyard in Asia’ award nabbing the 49th slot in the ranking. Chateau Heritage is owned and operated by the three sons of Elias Tanios Touma. As a fourth-generation wine and alcohol producer, the three brothers Dargham, Wissam and Houssam are proud to keep the long history of the family traditions alive and to preserve their family’s wine-making heritage. The winery was established in an abandoned school built in 1927. The winery was designed to preserve the school’s distinct structure. The three brothers oversee every aspect of the business, thereby ensuring an artisanal style of wine production that gives Chateau Heritage its unique identity. The brand, which launched its first vintage onto the market in 1997, works exclusively with non-irrigated vines from the Bekaa-Valley.
