VINEYARDS

vineyards-image

Our vineyards are located in the Bekaa Valley at an average altitude of 1,000 meters. The Bekaa has a semi-continental climate. The winters are cold with moderate rainfall and the summers are hot and dry. The altitude means that the hot summer days are balanced by cool evenings with a temperature difference of around 15°C. The vineyards also benefit from the land’s own natural water table, which is situated between two snow-capped mountain ranges. We have between 600 and 700mm of yearly rainfall, concentrated in autumn and winter. In contrast, the weather is dry during summer months and growing seasons, resulting in far fewer diseases. Pesticides and herbicides are not used, so the grapes are grown almost organically. The soil ranges from chalk, to clay and chalk, to clay and limestone, but it is always stony.
