Wine Tour in Batroun with CMA Croisières & Voyages

This time our wine tour will be in the north, in Batroun. We will visit the following wineries: Trappiste Priests,
Ixsir, and Aurora and we will have lunch in Batrouniyat.
Lebanese wineries count over 30 nowadays. This bijou winery, with its clay-limestone vineyards, nestled between the mountains and the Mediterranean sea, produce a range of unique wines that capture the spirit of the Levant.
Our tour will start by a visit to Deir el Mokhalles ‘Trappiste Priests Winery’. We will taste wine and local products and have breakfast there.
Trappiste is a small winery, producing small quantities of high quality wine.

Our next stop will be in IXSIR; a truly Lebanese wine, Ixsir blends varieties of grapes found across the country: Batroun, Jezzine and Bekaa Valley. It is a winery that has won 5 medals from London
International wine fair. You will visit it, learn about wine production and get to taste its exquisite wine.
The last stop will be in CHATEAU AURORA. It is a true boutique wine, exclusively made by The Geara family of Rachkedde, Aurora now has 2 vineyards for a total of 1.4 acres. The first vintage was made of the early grapes in 2004.
Now without food in your stomachs, the last stop will be in BATROUNIYAT for lunch. Batrouniyat is an old
stone house that reflect Lebanon’s authentic heritage and has a shop that sells homemade products, wine, organic foods and goods.
Then we will take the bus to visit the historical “St. Stephan’s Cathedral”, walk in the old Souk, go to the “Phoenician wall”, visit “Our Lady of the See” and end our walk at “Makaad el Mir”.
A cultural tour of Batroun with a walk in the old souk and a visit to the Phoenician ruins will be a great way to spend the day.
As usual, you will enjoy memorable moments among friends! It’ll be great!
