Bekaa Valley

Bekaa Valley

În Liban s-au cultivat struguri și s-a produs vin din cele mai vechi timpuri. Bekaa Valley este cea mai renumită zonă viticolă din Liban, cei mai importanți struguri roșii fiind Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cinsault, Carignan și Grenache. Cele mai interesante soiuri indigene, din care se fac vinuri albe, sunt Obeideh și Merwah. Bekaa Valley a devenit o importantă regiune producătoare de vin, multe crame fiind așezate pe terenul său fertil. De-a lungul secolelor și-a câștigat renumele de inimă a agriculturii Orientului Mijlociu.

The Lebanese wine estate Massaya began in 1998 as wine-making partnership of Tanail Property, developed in partnership with the renown French experts Dominique Hebrard, founding family of Chateau Cheval Blanc, Hubert de Bouard de Laforest, of Chateau Angelus, Daniel Brunier of Chateau Le Vieux Télégraphe.

Massaya’s Tanail Estate is located at an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon's wine hot spot, its slopes protected by Mount Lebanon and the Anti -Lebanon mountains. Free of frost and disease, the Bekaa Valley enjoys a unique climate with long gentle summers, wet winters and an average temperature of 25 degrees; all in all perfect for viticulture.
Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre share the honours in the Silver Label and underline the close links between Massaya and the South of France, courtesy, in this instance, of the Chateauneuf du Pape connection. The winery produces 300,000 bottles per annum, 80% of which are exported while the restaurant and tasting facilities are frequented by resident Lebanese and tourists alike.
