Bekaa Valley lies between the two parallel mountain ranges of Lebanon. It is a very fertile land irrigated by the Litany river and it is the largest agricultural area in Lebanon, with an advanced winery industry of international standards. It is the tip of the Great Rift Valley that stretches into Africa. The Phoenician inscriptions of 1400 BC described Bekaa Valley as the ’Place for the Gods’.
Domaine des Tourelles is amongst the longest-established and most highly-acclaimed wineries in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Founded in 1868 by French adventurer François-Eugène Brun, Domaine des Tourelles was the first commercial cellar in Lebanon producing wines.
