WHO WE ARE
Wine is rooted in earth.
It is with these words that Château Marsyas defines its philosophy deeply rooted in vine cultivation and the agricultural aspect of the ancient craft of wine making.
A quality wine is the result of patience which characterizes a certain philosophy and an exceptional product.
Château Marsyas is intended to translate human virtues that cannot be expressed other than through the fundamental elements of nature.
Stephane Derenoncourt the well known Bordeaux consultant of Château Marsyas recounts the beginning of his collaboration with the Saadé family:
“I met the Saadé family for a wine project proposal. I was instantly seduced by the Syrian project which consisted in creating a vineyard in a land on which it used to grow in ancient time. I was also struck by the passion and dynamism of the Saadé family who decided to come back and develop new projects in Syria.
I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the site and the diversity of soils: Everything was set to start this beautiful adventure.
More familiar to my palate, the Bekaa valley located between arid mountains, offers already well-known limestone soils.
To take a leading place in Lebanese wine production is a seducing challenge”.
