Tourelles Winery, Residing Near the Famous Historical Ruins of Baalbeck

Located near the famous historical ruins of Baalbeck and adorned by the Bacchus Temple in Lebanon, there exists charming Tourelles Winery. The 100 acres of vineyards reign over the Bekaa Valley, in the lovely village of Ammik – the finest winegrowing region of Lebanon.

 

Winery with History Centuries Old

Domaine des Tourelles Winery boasts the winemaking history of one and a half-century beginning in 1868 by François-Eugène Brun in Chtaura. Initially, the old estate was built in the traditional Lebanese architecture with stone walls and wooden ceiling, a building worth cherishing. The winery experienced several changes and expansions over the past years. Later in the 20th century, red roof tiles were added, keeping the traditional design alive.

Today, under the historic Arak Brun label, Tourelles Winery produces top-notch red, white, and rosé wines.

With immense dedication and passion, the Brun Family has produced grapes generation after generation with new varieties added regularly. Currently, their vineyards include Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache. Tempranillo, Viognier, Muscat, Chardonnay, and Obaideh are the additional varietals cultivated in the vineyards.

 

The Winery’s Cellar and Winemaking Equipment

The old cellar still has concrete vats for natural and biological aging and refining of wines, preserving terroirs’ authenticity, many new wooden oak barrels, and barriques, along with modern steel tanks. Century-old machines are placed in the basement as part of the Museum, depicting the winemaking family’s rich cultural and traditional heritage.
