Biography

Château St Thomas is the masterpiece of Saïd Touma & his son Joe-Assaad. Saïd Touma, a man of passion with more than 55 years
experience in distillation & fermentation of grape juice who inherited the legacy of producing Arak since 1888 (Lebanese national
drink), & passed it to his son Joe-Assaad, an agronomist & winemaker who followed in the family tradition with equal passion for great
winemaking & graduated from France (Montpelier & Bordeaux). The philosophy of the winemaker, Joe-Assaad, is to improve his
vineyards to obtain maximum quality wines reflecting generosity of an exceptional Bekaa Valley Terroir, & to respect the nature with a
modern winemaking approach to create rich balanced wines with fresh aromas. Saïd Touma, along with his family (Nadia, Nathalie,
Claudine, Micheline and Joe-Assaad) -as well as a group of devoted technicians- all wine lovers- work hard to ensure that the wines of
Château St Thomas have a promising future ahead of them.

The noble grapes varieties cultivated (Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Grenache, Cinsault, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc) as well as the local indigenous grape variety like Obeidy are accustomed to the climate conditions and geological characteristics of the Bekaa valley: a Mediterranean and a semi-continental climate characterized by cold and rainy winters
and hot and dry summers. The soil is superficial, well-drained and is constituted of a mixture of limestone and pebbly clay. The yield is particularly low. Water is never a problem because the Eastern and Western mountain ranges are recipients of frequent rain and snow from November to April.
