LebNat PetNat

Pétillant Naturel Wine

Our Pétillant Naturel wine is inspired by the God of Wine, Bacchus, whose temple is found in Baalbeck. We wanted to create a simple, natural wine for everyone to enjoy, that's why we made a Pét Nat using the ancestral method. We bottle before the first fermentation is complete then disgorge and refill the bottle and wait for further fermentation to work naturally in the bottle creating a lighter, crisper and a more cleaner, natural sparkling wine. 
 

Our LebNat Pét Nat comes in three ranges:

Mersel Wine's LebNat or Leb Nat Pet Nat wines, Petillant Naturel, Natural Sparkling Wine from Lebanon
