Overview

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). Visit one of the world's most beautiful Wine Cellars 7 days per week from 9a.m till 6 p.m

Visited this place for lunch, didn't do any tour but tasted the food which was amazing. Although the salad bar can be richer in terms of variety the vegetables and cheese were very fresh. Cheese plate was nice (Goat, Brie, Bleu and Camembert) And main...More

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.

The winery is beautiful and they make some nice wines. However, the guide didn't know much about the wines (she was just reading the labels during the tasting), and didn't seem to care too much about our experience. If she was new, she should've been...More

A must visit for every Lebanese and tourist, a place to enjoy the fresh taste of wine and take a look at how wine is made, starting from the vineyard to the bar.

I'll keep this short. I was disappointed overall. Chateau Ksara is banking on the tourists enjoying the free wine portions and the young, attractive female tour guides, while hoping that they (the tourists) overlook the fact that the tour is clearly read off the back...More
