Latakia

The Saade brothers originally hoped to buy land in Bordeaux for their winery (they decided against it because, ironically, they didn’t want to produce wine from afar). In 2003, they chose a 12-hectare plot on the slopes of Jebel al-Ansariye (aka Mount Bargylus) in northern Syria for Domaine de Bargylus, and a plateau between Mount Lebanon and the Anti-Lebanon mountains in the Bekaa valley for their Lebanese wine, Chateau Marsyas. The grapes are grown and bottled completely separately. Their first Bargylus became available in 2006 and their first bottle of Marsyas was ready in 2007. bargylus-vineyard Domaine de Bargylus Vineyard in Latakia, Syria. Their Syrian vineyard, 900 meters above sea level, has seen a lot of action. In June of 2014, two mortars ripped through it, pulverizing 15 of their Chardonnay plants. Yet despite the considerable challenges harvesting since 2011 (the vineyard workers work cautiously and quickly), and the logistical constraints (sampling from a different country, importing bottles, corks and labels from France into Lebanon and then sent to the vineyard in Syria), they still manage to produce on average, 45,000 bottles of Domaine de Bargylus – primarily reds — every year.
