Sandro Saade (R), the owner of Domaine de Bargylus, and French winemaker and consultant Stephane Derenoncourt during a wine tasting session in Beirut September 3, 2014. Amid the war in Syria, one hillside vineyard still produces wines that are served in the Michelin-starred restaurants of London and Paris. It has been a struggle to keep Syria's last commercial vineyard open, the owner of Domaine de Bargylus says. The war, which started in 2011, has engulfed the whole country, and militias on both sides fight in every province. Sandro Saade and his brother Karim, Christians with family roots in Syria and neighboring Lebanon, who have been forced out of Syria by the war, now manage the vineyard remotely from Beirut, 200 km (125 miles) away. During the summer, close to harvest, a sample of grapes are delivered twice a month to Beirut, where they are tasted by Stephane Derenoncourt, who has worked with the Saade brothers since the establishment of the vineyard.
