In 1888, the Touma Family established one of the first wineries and distilleries in Lebanon in the small town of Kab-elias of the Bekaa-Valley to produce wine and Arak Touma, the national Lebanese drink. Continuing in the success, tradition, and experience gained by the Touma family with their Arak Touma, the Château Heritage Winery was established by Elias Tanios Touma and Sons and released its first modern wines in 1997. Château Heritage is a family produced wine that preserves the traditions of wine making while mastering the state-of-the-art technologies in the production of varietal wines. It stands to be the best representation of a true Lebanese wine. The Philosophy behind Château Heritage wines is based upon four major elements: - Best-in-Class vineyard cultivation, the care required for it, and production of wine from gathered grapes. - Making use of the old experience and wine-making secrets passed over three generations of wine making fathers. - Mastering the use of the state-of-the-art wine making technologies. - Passion and Enjoyment of Lebanon and Wine Production. We are a Lebanese wine making family and we love it.
