Domaine of Chateau Khoury
In the mid-1990s, Raymond El Khoury, a biologist, acquired together with his wife his Alsatian wife Brigitte a large piece of land that had been fallow for over 50 years. He was a true wine lover with the dream to cultivate the land with vines
In 1995, the first 15 hectares were planted and the grapes were sold to other winegrowers. In the year 2002 the construction of the winery started, it was finished in 2004, in time for the vinification of the first vintage.

Harvest in Lebanon
Depsite the fact that half of their harvest of that year was lost due to hailstorms, they still managed to fill 25,000 bottles with wines made from the yield of the remaining grapes - and since than the Khourys made a veritable vertical start with their wines.
Jean-Paul El Khoury returned to his parents' winery as the oenologist in 2005. He studied three years in Alsace and two years in Reims. For him it is important to return the favours to the soil which gives you grapes for excellent wines. So he values pruning the vines and fertilizing the soil with its won trester
