Kurubis is a joint venture between Rhône winemaker Didier Cornillon and a local agribusiness.
The enterprise began in 2000 with the planting of vines and building of a modern winery on the outskirts of the coastal town of Korba in Cap Bon. The first wines were made in 2005 and are only for export, with most of the production destined for the French market. Kurubis is modern in its thinking, has a well-equipped winery, and uses organic practices wherever possible in the vineyards. The estate is unusual in making one of Tunisia’s two Méthode Traditionnelle sparkling wines.
