Winery Ixsir from Lebanon

Winery Ixsir from Lebanon
An old traditional house lies on the hills above the port of Batroun dating back to th e17th century. It was once owned by the Bitar family, who ruled the area during the Ottoman Empire. The traditional architecture is worth obeserving. But what exists further down the hill is truly breathtaking: The winery IXSIR, which was built twelve metres below and is completely hidden. In December 2011, CNN named IXSIR one of the 12 "greenest buildings in the world" highlighting its intelligent architecture and environmentally friendly winemaking process. This award confirms, among other things, the high sustainability and particularly low energy consumption of the company.
Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Renault-Nissan
IXSIR is probably the most remarkable vineyard in Lebanon. Carlos Ghosn, head of Renault-Nissan, started this spectacular 12 million dollar project in collaboration with his friends in 2007. The well-known Spanish oenologist Gabriel Rivero, who has worked for Chateau Kefraya, now produced wine with state-of-the-art technology, including an air exchange system. And Hubert De Boüard of Château Angelus, a friend of Ghosn, joined them as a consultant.
While the restored historical house, which is now an attraction for tourists offereing them an elegant restaurant with a large grill and boutique selling their wines and goods from local producers, is visible on the surface, an ultra-modern winery hides underneath. The cellar and storage is connected to a tunnel, which is completely overplanted amd used to display works of local artists.
