November 2, 2019, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Lebanese wines are making their debut at Wine Cellars featuring Domine des Tourelles from Bekaa Valley! Founded in 1868, Domaine des Tourelles is one of the longest established and most highly acclaimed wineries in the Bekaa Valley. The domaine is run today by Faouzi Issa (winemaker). Faouzi trained in Montpellier and worked at Domaine René Rostaing in Côte Rôtie before joining the legendary Château Margaux. He then went back to the Bekaa Valley and his efforts placed his family’s wines amongst the most recognized and awarded in Lebanon. Decanter Magazine called him the “Dusty Winemaker”: dust, Faouzi says “encourages the natural yeasts that give our wines their distinctive character.” We are excited to present these incredible wines so please join us!

Plus, a journey through the Piedmond & Tuscany Regions awaits you! From daring whites to dazzling reds, this collection of innovative wines from prominent producers will entice and delight. We simply say Salute' to Italian Wines!
