ABOUT THE LEBANESE WINE ESTATE, COUVENT ROUGE
Couvent Rouge was founded in Deir El Ahmar in 2010 to produce wine as a viable alternative to illegal cultivation and to complement the "Coteaux d'Heliopolis" cooperative for grapes, founded in 1999.
It pursues organic viticulture in its vineyards in Deir El Ahmar, a village 17 km north of Baalbek, the sun city where the famous Roman temple of Bachhus and the largest still standing Roman temple in the world are located. p >
The height of the vineyards varies between 950 and 1650 meters above sea level and the soils are red, loamy or gravel at higher altitudes and the region benefits from over 300 days of sunshine per year. < / p>
The Lebanese winery is striving to turn Deir El Ahmar into a wine growing village and to keep the families of the village in their hometown by buying their crops at a fair price. p >
Couvent Rouge's mission is to put Lebanon on the map of wine producing countries and to revive what this side of the world produced best during the Roman Empire.
It is a young and modern winery that produces a wide range of wines, from affordable entry-level wines to fine, oak-aged, high-end wines.
The winery has an actual production of 100,000 bottles / year, with a capacity of 500,000 bottles / year, which can be achieved as required, as the winery can fall back on the cooperative's 240 hectares of noble vines. p>
Couvent Rouge has official partnerships with the cooperative "Les Coteaux d'Heliopolis" and FTTL FairTrade and Tourism Lebanon.
