About Lebanon


In the heart of the Bekaa, near Zahle and Baalbeck, lies the Ksara estate, so named because it was the site of a ksar, or fortress, at the time of the Crusades. The property was acquired by the Jesuit Fathers in 1857 when it was already famed as a vineyard and they perpetuated the tradition of winemaking. With the directives of the Vatican II synod the Fathers decided to sell the estate in conformity.
Ksara's natural wine cellar was a grotto discovered by the Romans who consolidated part of the vault and dug several narrow tunnels from the cave into the surrounding chalk. These tunnels were enlarged to their present size during world war I when the Jesuit Fathers sought to alleviate famine in Lebanon by creating employment. Today, Ksara produces wines with strong personalities, achieving a rare conditions of dry fruitiness, delicacy and robustness. Wines that leave an imprint on the memory which is as long as their history, and that has received hundreds of international awards.
It is the perfect venue for wine tasting for wine lovers.
