At Mersel Wine, we wanted to embed our culture with our wines. Lebanese people are warm and hospitable, they open their hearts and homes and welcome those around them. We wanted to create wines that fit with the Lebanese character, wines that are for everyone to enjoy, and wines that help our local farmers.

Our name 'Mersel Wine' comes from the region Maksar Mersel, which is the highest viticulture region in Lebanon, located between the Cedars and Ainata El Arz at an altitude ranging between 2,000 and 2,400m. We also have vineyards in Ainata in the Bekaa Valley, Dimane and Bcharre in Wadi Qannoubine, and Bousit in Northern Lebanon.
Our philosophy is to keep it simple. Our wines are made naturally, with very little or no sulfites. Our wines are unfiltered and unfined using organic farming methods, resulting in simple fermented wine.

Mersel Wine is committed to producing high-quality wines and spirits that are not mainstream in the Lebanese market. We strive to produce wine with diverse tastes and methods using natural and environmentally friendly methods. We are committed to planting and maintaining our vineyards in an environmentally friendly manner so that every bottle can be savoured and enjoyed.
