In the ancient vine production tradition, Lebanon owns its existence to Christian’s communities that kept some vineyards in this area. Chateau Ksara acquired by the Jesuits Fathers in 1857, perpetuated the tradition of winemaking. Applying what they knew, they produced Lebanon’s first dry red wine and in doing so, laid the foundations of Lebanon’s modern wine industry. New varietals were cultivated all over Ksara’s vineyards. Nowadays, Chateau Ksara has 90% of its vineyards production as noble grapes. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Ksara Reserve du Couvent 2011


    Aromas of berries, vanilla, spice and cedar wood, palate shows rich full dark fruit, cherry, and leathery lingering finish with full tannins. Blend of 40% syrah, 30% cab franc, 30 cab sauv. Interesting wine from Lebanon, highly recommend at the price point. Read More

  • Château Ksara White Blend Blanc de Blancs 2008


    Reminds me of a California Chard. Not bad, but not what I expected. It is actually a still wine so I don't know why they would call it blanc de blancs. Oaky. Chard/Sauv. Blanc blend. Read More

  • Chateau Ksara Chardonnay Bekaa Valley Lebanon 2009


    Very fresh, very summery, lemonish crisp half-dry taste. Hints of Riesling. For an evening of a hot day.I'd recommend fish, or Lebanese food in general with this. A salad with pomegranate seeds will probably work excellently with this wine. I had grilled salmon and potatoes and a dash of sour cream over the salmon, and this wine was a very good ... Read More
