The Wine
Fading yellow with light green reflections. The noses expresses exotic fruit aromas of papaya and lemon with a touch of saltiness as well. On the palate, the wine is very elegant, round, keeping a lot of freshness due to a good acidity.

Cited by Pliny the Elder, Mount Bargylus, known today as Jebel Al-Ansariyé, spreads from the Orontes Valley near the ancient city of Antioch to the Eleutherus Valley in the south of ancient Emesa. This land is a country of mystery and legends where wine and alphabet were revealed to man and where the ancients grew vines more than 3000 years ago. Located in the hinterland of the Hellenistic city of Laodicea –the modern Syrian city of Latakia- and the Canaanite metropolis of Ugarit, the slopes of Mount Bargylus were richly covered with vines during the Greco-roman era. The Bargylus wine estate is precisely located near Deir Touma, literally translated as the “convent of Thomas”, not far from the archeological vestiges of the crusading era and the famous Saladin.
