About the winery
The Couvent Rouge winery was established in 2010 in Deir el Ahmar to produce wine as a viable alternative to the illicit production of cannabis crops in the area. It was born out of the "Coteaux Heliopolis" a cooperative for vines and grapes that was founded in 1999 and supports locals farmers' yields. Couvent Rouge strives to transform Deir el Ahmar into a vine growing village and create infrastructure that will help keep the village's families in their hometown through buying their harvest at a fair price. Couvent Rouge's mission is to the put Lebanon on the map of wine producing countries, reviving what this side of the world used to produce best during the Roman Empire. Couvent Rouge is a young and modern winery, producing a full range of wines, from entry level affordable wines, to high end oak aged refined wines.
