The Bargylus estate is precisely located near Deir Touma, literally translated as the “convent of Thomas”, not far from the archaeological vestiges of the crusading era and the illustrious Saladin. Typically Mediterranean in style, Bargylus elegantly combines strength and refinement: it has a strong color, the range of aroma is perceivable through the fresh fruit and minerality that translates the very shingly soil.

Making wine in Syria is a real challenge given the lack of wine culture and infrastructure. The task became more difficult with the breaking out of the war in Syria. The Saadé brothers have been unable to visit the estate since the beginning of the conflict. Beside the obvious security problems, Bargylus is also facing a logistical hassle: Harvesting is done over the phone by the two brothers. Grape samples are sent by taxi for tasting in Beirut in order to determine the harvesting dates for each parcel; laboratory tests are made outside the country; exporting of the wines is also an extremely complex process; etc….

"A lovely wine with blueberry, flower and stone, Such finesse and beauty. Medium body, very fine tannins. Long finish. A blend of syrah, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot and merlot. Drink now." 92 pts, James Suckling

"Dried violets and rosemary, tea leaf, smoked meat and porcini. Quite a herbaceous Rhonish profile, Hermitage, with smoky mature Barossa notes, finessed tannins Tom Harrow, Wine Gurur

Due to high demand we've temporarily increased our standard delivery fee to £12.50 for orders under £75 - orders over £75 still come with free delivery!

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).

These lovely wines and gifts are stored in our cellar in Clapham, ready for immediate dispatch (and drinking)! If we have less than 12 bottles, the display will show the number available today. If you’d like more than the number shown, or it’s shown as ‘Out of Stock’ / ‘Email to order’, just call us or drop us an email to confirm your order and delivery schedule, as our winemakers send us fresh stocks frequently.
