About the winemaker

Laila Maghathe is a new producer in the Mersel portfolio. She is originally from the US and is currently making wine between Lebanon and Southern Australia.

She’s been working in wine production for about 7 vintages and settled in Lebanon making “Love Letter” since 2021. She strongly believes in natural wine and making wine without any additives. All the wines produced are organic, fermented naturally, have zero sulphur added and are meant to be expressive and alive.

Her newest wine, Love Letter, is an ode to her Levantine roots.
