Rayak Boutique Winery: Every Bottle is Made with Love

Wine-making has been a passion of the Maalouf family for hundreds of years. In 1914 the family escaped the World War One famine in Mount Lebanon and took refuge in the city of Rayak, in the Bekaa Valley. The region’s unique climate and terrain provided their wine with an unexpected wealth of flavors, aromas, and rich colors. Looking back on centuries of winemaking experience, the Maalouf artisanal winery is located in a city at the heart of Lebanon’s winemaking region.

Chateau Rayak: Produced with 9 types of grapes with a dark cherry red color, this wine is highly aromatic, perfectly balanced. Bouquet of dark cedar honey, dry pine leaves, and Oakwood. The grapes used in this wine are organically raised and delicately cultivated from our vineyards in Terboul. The fermentation takes place at our small artisanal winery in Rayak. The hole proses is labored and operated by family members with only a few external interventions.

Station de Rayak: Trains are built by men, but cities are built by trains. ‘Station du Rayak’ is a tribute to the famous Rayak Railroad Station, connecting three continents. Established in1895 in the middle of the fertile Bekaa Valley, it was once the main link between Africa, Asia, and Europe. The complex tastes found in this bottle of wine will take you on a journey back in time, reminiscent of the legacy of the millions of passengers who passed through this station.
