Wine & Spirits
The Younan Company’s La Maison Younan has completely transformed the vineyards of Chateau la Croix Younan and Château Zaya. Located in the infamous Saint Émilion Rive Droite Right region of Bordeaux, France, the vineyards produce Merlot & Cabernet Franc dominant Bordeaux Red Wines and Blanc Wine.
The winery teams are led by Dr. Alain Raynaud, former President of the Union des Grands Crus and one of the founders and current President of the prestigious wine association, The Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux.
In 2022, La Maison Younan announced the acquisition of Chateau Ascumbas, which contains over 5 acres of vineland on a single parcel. This acquisition was a major stepping stone for the company, highlighting the company’s presence as large producers of wine in the region.
Since its acquisitions, La Maison Younan has invested heavily into improving production and aging processes at its vineyards, while garnering worldwide media coverage in the process, including a 91 rating by Antonio Galloni’s Vinous Wine Media, as well as being the first American-owned vineyard to be inducted into Bordeaux’s famous Jurade of Saint-Émilion.

Tobacco Wholesale & Distribution
In the year 2019, Younan Company’s subsidiary La Maison Younan made headlines by acquiring El Septimo luxury cigars and tobacco. This acquisition was significant as El Septimo is headquartered in Geneva and has a rich legacy of crafting premium cigars. Under the ownership of Younan Company, El Septimo has expanded its product offerings to include a range of cigar accessories like cutters, humidors, and travel cases, as well as spirits like cognac. The brand has also expanded its global reach, with its products now available on the shelves of retailers worldwide.
El Septimo’s cigars are handmade using 100% ng-filler tobacco, and the wrappers are grown in high-altitude tropical environments in Costa Rica. To achieve the perfect flavor, the tobacco is aged for up to 15 years using a proprietary process. Today, El Septimo produces over 40 different blends of premium cigars, which are highly sought after by cigar aficionados worldwide.
Following the acquisition of El Septimo, La Maison Younan went on to acquire 7 Global Distribution (7GD), the top wholesaler in Las Vegas for products like tobacco, vape, and hookah. This acquisition further cemented Younan Company’s reputation as one of the leading wholesalers and distributors of tobacco products. As a result, 7GD became one of the largest distributors of El Septimo’s cigars in the country, consolidating La Maison Younan’s position in the luxury cigar and tobacco industry.
