When we bought the building that is now the chateau heritage winery in 1997, the first vines that we cultivated were in the vineyard next to the winery. These vineyards are watched over by the statue of Saint Elias the patron saint of our winery. The summer of 2014 was the last harvest that our father Elias Tanios Touma participated in, before he passed away in January 2015. As an homage to the founder of this company, a beloved and respected father and a great man, and to commemorate the last harvest we celebrated together, we are releasing this special Chateau Heritage Cuvee Saint Elie. Saint Elie is the patron saint of our father, our family and our winery and this wine is intended as a celebration of our father’s passion for life.
Now, 20 years later we decided to ferment the grapes of these vineyards with oak staves and the result was an amazing white wine we are extremely proud of.
Chateau Heritage Cuvee Saint Elie White has a brilliant pale yellow color. Intense nose of yellow fruits and dried fruits with fine spices. Beautiful full mouthfeel.
