  • The chateau KSARA it is an institution, we passed as part of a tour group a balbeek. The castle is beautiful, the visitors center is well-organized, tasting a little lightning bolt was good. I think only it lacks in the visit the historical part of this area, these vines, and this knowledge do. It would have been so much more interest. But it's still a good time of my stay in Lebanon, it could only have been still better

  • At the beginning of may, it wasn't crowd the day of our visit... Interesting introduction video then partial visit of the cellars, but not areas of winemaking or bottling. Nice tasting some specialities of Château Ksara.

  • The caves where the wine is kept are unique in their layout and history. Very professional and insightful staff with great info about winemaking. Loved the shop too.
  • The oldest dry red production in Lebanon. 2.5 million production. Professional and informative tour and tasting.
  • Nice experience, simple and but beneficial wine tasting and cave tour(free tour and tasting). The food is great I tried the steak and the salad bar, price vs taste it is a great deal.
  • Part of an organized day tour. The cave was interesting and the young lady who did our wine tasting was exemplary. ( Mona, maybe?).
  • One of the best Lebanese wine producer. U can have a lovely between the grapes and into the historic caves too. Recommended for wine lovers.
