A wine, a soil and a history…the Johnny R.Saadé family produces Domaine de Bargylus, the first premium wine in Syria. Embedded within a strong eastern tradition, the Johnny R. Saadé family draws, from its Levantine roots, a passion for challenges among which the renaissance of the ancient vineyards of the Orient.
Domaine de Bargylus is now managed by Johnny’s sons, Karim and Sandro, and their adventure in the world of wine today represents the achievement of long-standing family ambition. It is something that the family had been considering for years. Their father was always passionate about wine, say the brothers. “Bordeaux was his first favourite, and then later he fell in love with the Côtes du Rhone reds.”
Domaine de Bargylus is the Johnny R. Saadé family’s project to revive this vineyard that was planted by the Romans 2000 years ago in Syria – to honour this ancient terroir and create a great wine. Respect for nature, ambition and passion are all plainly evident here. The project commenced in 2004.
Karim Saade the owner of Domaine de Bargylus, will take our guests at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani on a virtual wine journey on April 8, 2022, to showcase the house’s exquisite wines alongside our expert sommeliers.
