IXSIR’s vineyards are spread from the north to the south of Lebanon, and aim to promote sustainable farming by helping more than 250 families of farmers to remain on their lands. IXSIR insures that long term buying contracts with vine growers are set, including a higher pay on grapes than the rest of the market, along with technical counselling and strict quality control. This Fair Trade approach was used to create a safer environment where productions of illicit crops were replaced by a sustainable agriculture.
IXSIR’s winery consumes 75% less energy than any other winery in the world. Winemaking takes place in a vineyard located on the hills of Batroun where a 17th century traditional Lebanese house presides over a contemporary winery with sustainability at its core.
