Colombier Red, Massaya, 75cl
The story of the Tanaïl Property goes back to the early 70's as the Ghosn family acquired an Estate planted with table vines. At First, they made homemade Arak from the grapes grown on the property. Sami and Ramzi Ghosn, the second generation owners, learned to love nature and its greatest produce, wine. During their childhood, in 1975, the civil war raged in Lebanon forcing the Ghosn’s to leave their Estate, nevertheless they always knew a day would come where they would return.
Seventeen years later Sami Ghosn, by then an architect working in Los Angeles, returned to Lebanon and revisited the war-ravaged family estate. The land worked its magic and he decided to give up everything in order to devote himself to bringing the domain back to life.

A blend of Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah the wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks then matured for 8 months in concrete vats.
