  • Test many different wines-both red and white, and the wine tasting costs nothing! As a backpacker, I couldn't take with wine bottles from KSARA but there were a couple of very fine wines of all the ones I tested. Got a little giddy after wine testing, since I missed that spit out the wine for every provglas! The solution was that I stayed a few hours and visited the restaurant in the same building and the food was really delicious!

  • My visit was at the end of a day trip to the Beqaa Valley (Anjar + Baalbek). The place has nice a character and the wines are unique tasting. My favorite was the red Reserve du Couvent. Wines are relatively young and have a bite to them. Like I said, it's a nice place to a full day of temple tours. 👍
