Red Still Wine

Dar Richi Hanan was created by a Syrian refugee named Abdullah Richi who moved to Lebanon to escape the atrocities of the Syrian war. Abdullah was interested in winemaking and through observational learning with our wine maker, Eddie Chami, he developed this red still wine and named it after his wife – Hanan.
