About
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).

It was great. Bought a lot of wine. Everyone is so nice and friendly there. I took a tour back in July with a very nice tour guide named Aymen but he doesn’t work there anymore. Would’ve loved to say hi. Overall, great wine and great history.

We loved the guided tour and the style of the château, a lot of history behind the making of their wines. Our guide Reine was super knowledgeable about the history of the place, the wine formulas, and the age of each wine. Reine was also super friendly and very fun to walk around with. I highly recommend.

My wife and I recently visited Chateau Ksara in Lebanon, and it was an extraordinary experience, largely thanks to our fantastic tour guide, Elise.

Elise's knowledge and passion for the winemaking process and the history of Chateau Ksara were exceptional. She brought the rich heritage of the vineyard to life with captivating storytelling and a deep understanding of every detail.

Elise expertly guided us through the vineyards, sharing insights into the region's terroir and grape varietals. Inside the cellar, she made the winemaking process accessible and fascinating, even for newcomers to wine.

The wine tasting was a highlight, with Elise's guidance allowing us to savor the intricate flavors and aromas of Chateau Ksara's wines. Her warm hospitality and willingness to answer our questions made us feel like valued guests.

Great experience! Had some trouble at the restaurant with the service and the orders but the same was resolved professionally and swiftly by Elio. We had wine tasting with Reine who is pure positive energy and very knowledgeable! We learned so much about wine and enjoyed every second of the tour and tasting. Marienne at reception had great management skills and was very professional, much respect to her.

a very good tour with very interesting sites and very interesting information. however, the ladies in the reception and the shop are very agitated bordering on irritated by the visitors; UNLESS you purchase a large bottle or bottles. in the reception instead of trying to instruct and organize visitors they want to know the minute you approach them what you want. im talking about the wine tasting experience you have the chance to do. i found them very annoyed by our presence ( i was visiting with a group ). i bought the very small bottles of arak ( KSARAK ) and when i asked for price the lady told me a higher one. it s good that they had price tags at the back and i corrected her. however, i do recommend it, it s a beautiful experience. you have to make an appointment before you visit.
