Producer - Château Ksara is Lebanon’s oldest winery, and its establishment laid the foundations for the country’s modern wine industry. It is situated in the heart of the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon’s pre-eminent wine-producing region. Winemaking began in 1857 when the estate was inherited by Jesuit monks, who began farming a 27-hectare plot of land where they produced Lebanon’s first dry red wine. In 1973, identifying Ksara’s potential, a consortium of forward-thinking local Lebanese businessmen purchased the estate and set about investing in the vineyards and the cellars. Their foresight has positioned Château Ksara as one of Lebanon’s most successful wineries.

Taste - Ready to drink, it has flavours of intense red and black fruits and with spice and garrigue aromas. Best served slightly chilled
