The name “Terroir de Bacchus” derives from the location of the vineyards in the Lebanese village of Ainata-Al-Arz at 30 km from the temple of Bacchus in Baalbeck. Bacchus, the Roman God of agriculture, fertility and wine, chose to build his temple in this Lebanese region for a fine reason. It was where the best vineyards produced the finest wine throughout the Roman Empire.
At an altitude of 1800m above sea level, Ainata is considered as the highest vineyard in Lebanon and the Middle East. This vineyard enjoys the continental climate, with snow cover throughout the winter and plenty of sun with low humidity during the summer.
