Winery Domaine Bargylus from Syria

syrian Vineyards of Domaine Bargylus
Stéphane Derenoncourt, an oenologist known all over the world who worked for wineries such as Château Smith Haut Lafte, Château Talbot, Domaine de chevalier and much more, decided to support and develop the cultivation and vinification of qualitative wine in the heart of Syria. The Saadé family (owners of the vineyards) aims to launch their winery with the help of Stéphane in order to revive the ancient vineyards of the Orient, cultivated 3000 years ago.
Sandro & Karim Saade
In 1997 Karim and Sandro Saadé bought a total of 12 hectares of land in the suburbs of Latakia at an altitude of about 900 metres. They planted vineyards and founded their winery by 2003. Influenced by the French, they planted their vineyards with the grape varieties Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Stephane Derenoncourt, a renowned consultant and oenologist from Bordeaux, supported the brothers with the construction of their winery in their homeland, Château Marsyas, near Kefraya in the Bekaa Valley, at about the same time.

Harvest of Domaine Bargylus
At that time the region was still peaceful and calm. The two Saadé brothers regularly drove to their winery across the Syrian border in order to examin grapes together with Derenoncourt. And in 2006 they were able to bottle the first vinatge.
And both, their red and white wine caught the hearts of many critques and testers including the well-known wine critic Jancis Robinson who said: "Bargylus is the finest wine produced in the eastern Mediterranean region".

Harvest of Domaine Bargylus
The beginning of the civil war brought the more difficult circumstances and drastically changed the way they harvest. For security reasons, Karim and Sandro Saadé have not been on Domaine de Bargylus since the beginning of 2011. They manage everything by telephone from Lebanon. When the harvest approaches, grapes are taken to Beirut in a refrigerated container in order to be analysed. They will harvest only at the right time.
A trip to Beirut, which is about 220 km away, takes four hours. The order, however, could be closed restricting the the driver to get through, which results in the spoiling of the grapes. They will try a wew attempt the next day and hope that the driver will corss the crisis area. This procedure makes their wine production dangerous and cost-intensive. It is obvious that such a complex export process is both extremely time-consuming and risky.
