Couvent Rouge was founded in 2010 in Deir El Ahmar. It cultivates organic grapes in its vineyards in Deir El Ahmar, a village 17 km north of Baalbek, the City of the Sun.
The altitude of the vineyards varies between 950 and 1650 meters above sea level. The soils are red, loamy, or gravelly at higher altitudes, and the region benefits from over 300 days of sunshine a year.
The Lebanese winery has made it its mission to transform Deir El Ahmar into a wine-growing village and to keep the families of the village in their home village by buying their harvest at a fair price. Couvent Rouge's mission is to put Lebanon on the map of wine-producing countries and revive what was best produced on this side of the world in the days of the Roman Empire.
It is a young and modern winery that produces a wide range of wines, from affordable entry-level wines to fine premium wines aged in oak.
