Hallgarten Wines introduces Lebanon’s only Assyrtiko from Château Oumsiyat

We are delighted to announce the introduction of Lebanese producer, Château Oumsiyat, to our portfolio. The range of 11 wines has been blended exclusively for the UK on- and off-trade by Hallgarten Head of Buying, Steve Daniel, in partnership with Château Oumsiyat owner and winemaker, Joseph Bou Sleiman.

 

The selection of five red, five white and one rosé wine includes Lebanon’s only Assyrtiko, sourced from a nursery in Northern Italy and planted in one small plot in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.

 

Hallgarten Head of Buying, Steve Daniel commented: “We are thrilled to be working alongside Château Oumsiyat who, with their progressive methods and style of wines, are far ahead of the curve in Lebanese winemaking and producing cutting-edge wines. The wines are a fresh, Mediterranean style which we felt were a perfect fit into the Hallgarten portfolio. We have found that the appetite for Eastern Mediterranean style wines is growing hugely in the UK, so to be able to offer wines that match this style perfectly whilst embracing Lebanon’s rich winemaking history is invaluable!”

 

Château Oumsiyat is situated in the village of Mtein in the foothills of the Mount Lebanon mountain range where they own 78 hectares of vineyard that stretch to the Bekaa Valley. From hand-harvesting to vineyard management, the team at Château Oumsiyat maintains a constant respect for the environment in all aspects of the winemaking process to achieve wines that recognise tradition and embrace modernity. 

 

The family-owned producer has been passed down through the Bou Sleiman family for four generations and takes passion in blending and respect for local tradition with modern techniques to craft contemporary wines that represent a fusion of Old World and New World.  

 

The grapes are grown in the 78 hectare vineyard, situated at over 1,000 metres elevation in the beautiful Bekaa Valley, between Mount Lebanon to the west and the Anti-Lebanon Mountains to the east. The altitude, microclimate and soils combine in this ancient terroir to produce fresh wines with a very Mediterranean “feel.”
