Château St Thomas
Established in 1990 by Saïd Touma and his family on a hill overlooking the Bekaa valley, Château St Thomas estate is a vineyard spreading over 65 hectares with a storehouse for fermentation and ageing. the Romans once created the Temple of Bacchus on this very land in the Bekaa valley, a tribute to the Roman god of wine. Throughout history, this land has shown and still shows untapped potential to produce great wines.
Château St Thomas is the masterpiece of Saïd Touma and his son Joe-Assaad. Saïd Touma, a man of passion, has more than 55 years of experience in the distillation and fermentation of grape juice, and inherited this knowledge from producing Arak, a Lebanese national drink. He passed this legacy on to his son Joe Assaad, an agronomist and winemaker, who followed in the family tradition with equal passion for great winemaking. Joe’s philosophy is to improve his vineyards in the production of quality wines reflecting the generosity of Bekaa Valley’s exceptional terroir while respecting nature with a modern winemaking approach.
