Château Héritage is a producer of Lebanese wine located in the heart of the beautiful Bekaa-Valley of Lebanon. It is the first and only Lebanese winery to have ever been elected for three years in a row amongst the Top 50 best wineries of the planet. The Touma Family settled in the Bekaa-Valley and established one of the first wine and Arak Producing plants of Lebanon in 1888. Château Héritage is now a Fourth-Generation producer of wines and is proud to keep the long history of the Touma Family traditions alive. Château Héritage started releasing its first wine bottles into the market in 1997. The winery was established in an abandoned historical old school building that was built in 1927.
