Our Wines
Our Philosophy

Our founder, Elias Jreissati, sums up the Levantine Hill philosophy in a single sentence: “There is no success without pursuing perfection, and seldom is their perfection without pain.”

Levantine Hill exists for only one reason. To create handcrafted wines of uncompromising quality in the traditional French style.

That’s why we do everything the traditional way: by hand. We hand pick and hand sort all our grapes. While it’s much slower that way, it stops any inferior fruit from sneaking through and ensures the overall quality is higher. Nothing is left to chance.

We also cut back some of the ripening fruit from our vines, something that reduces our yield but enhances the flavour of the remaining fruit.

We only ever work with small batches of fruit. That means we also only make small quantities of wine, but it allows us to give every vintage the personal, hands-on attention it deserves.

Hand plunging during fermentation is particularly important.

While other wineries use machines, our winemaker hand plunges to make sure the grape skins stay in contact with the juice during fermentation.

It also allows him to feel the temperature and keep in touch with how the wine is developing.

And finally, all our wines are matured in the finest French oak.

The result is a selection of highly sophisticated wines that draw their inspiration from the very best French wines while still displaying their own unique character.
