The name itself takes on a highly symbolic meaning since it represents the wedding that happened in Cana of Galilée and precisely in south Lebanon, where Jesus Christ transformed water into wine.The vines are planted on terraces; and consequently the grapes are handpicked during the harvest season, which is softer on the vines and helps with the quality control, such as dismissing under ripe or rotten grapes. The sorted grapes are quickly de-stemmed and crushed. With our minimal intervention model of wine making, the must (or juice) can begin fermenting naturally within 6-12 hours. After around 3 weeks of fermentation, maturing of Mariage de Cana takes place naturally by allowing the wine to rest in stainless tanks to undergo the malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged in oak barrels to add complexity, reduce the acidity and round the tannins.
