Overview
More
Chateau Ksara, the country's oldest winery, founded in 1857 by Jesuit Fathers. In August 1973, sold to a consortium of Lebanese businessmen Chateau Ksara's motto is "Modernity in Tradition". It is an idea that captures perfectly our position as Lebanon's oldest winery and the pioneering spirit that has kept Chateau Ksara at the forefront of Lebanon's wine industry, for over 156 years. Today's wine drinkers are both informed and discerning, and therefore we are committed to producing quality wines - varietals and blends made from our 25 local and international varieties - that will satisfy all palates and suit all occasions. Not only are our wines made to the most exacting standards with state of the art equipment, they also reflect the terroir of the Lebanon's historic Bekaa Valley, an area that has been making wine for over 2,000 years. It is a legacy that we respect with every bottle we make. Brand values The name of Chateau Ksara has become associated with the three core values: tradition, nobility and modernity. These are emphasized through name and lineage (tradition); through a high-quality product (nobility) and the tremendous innovative advances made since 1991 (modernity).

Arrived very cold and hungry from Baalbec so decided to eat first. The restaurant was deserted. Very limited choice and prices are steep but it just about did the trick. Tour and wine tasting was fortunately much better. Although we did not see any production...More

Great stop for a break and glass of wine. Food is available as well but I did not eat there. Secure parking and good sized tasting room. Sales on site.

In Zahle, Chateau Ksara welcome his visitors with free tour inside, beginning with short documentary film about the wine and continue visiting the caves so old, full of old wine explanation with a guide to finish by “degustation”. Charming and welcoming staff.
