Located in the heart of Lebanon in the Bekaa Valley, Château Kefraya extends its land of 300 acres on the foothills of Mount Barouk, 20 km south of the town of Chtaura. Both the vineyard planted in a series of terraces and slopes often steep at an altitude of 950 to 1100 meters on clay-limestone and rocky soils, associated with exceptional sunshine without precipitation during six to seven months a year – together with the winery, located in the middle of the domain, endowed with state-of-the-art equipment, allowing manually harvested grapes to be led, stemmed, fermented and pressed with great care, have enabled the development of a wine with character and authenticity particular to Château Kefraya. Starting from scratch, an image was built, which in such a case, would require decades if not centuries. Hence, Château Kefraya's vineyards are only fifty years old - on average - and its cellar just thirty years of age! These wines have meanwhile gained their nobility, both in Lebanon and abroad. The quality of these products has been recognized and certified by the number and prestigious awards obtained in international blind tasting competitions. Gold, silver and bronze medals, not to mention trophies, laudatory articles in newspapers and specialized magazines including the most famous of them published by the "wine pope" Robert Parker who entitled his text "An amazing accomplishment in Lebanon", have crowned the efforts undertaken since 1951 by breaking the fallow land, blasting the infested rocks in the soil which has never produced anything since the creation and the plantation of the largest vineyard in Lebanon.

Farbe: Rubinrot Im Gaumen kraftvolle Eleganz mit sanfter Fülle, dichtes und seidiges Tannin. Ein Wein von grossem Charakter. Nobel und gut ausgebaut.

When you think of wines from Lebanon, Château Kefraya should always come to mind. This cuvée is a red blend of French varieties: Cabernet, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Grenache.
