Cinsault, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon
All orders need to be picked up in Greendale, Wisconsin.
We do not ship.
Founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar in Lebanon.
World class, Bordeaux-esque wine; principled by limited intervention and natural wine making techniques.
For the first 40 years the wine was largely consumed within Lebanon, but with the start of the Lebanese civil war in the early 70s, the market was largely gone. Serge Hochar (winemaker and Gaston's son) continued to produce wine during the 20 year war, and pushed to make the wine available to international markets.
It is unique, alluring, special. Embodies the turmoil of producing wine in a volatile place.
