Since Biblical times, Lebanon has been acclaimed for its prized Bekaa Valley wines. Lebanon’s oldest wineries merely resumed a 5000-year Phoenician tradition. Today, this bijou winery, with its clay-limestone vineyards, nestled between the mountains and the Mediterranean, produce a range of unique wines that capture the spirit of the Levant.
It is no coincidence that the Romans chose the Bekaa Valley as the site for building the temple of Bacchus in homage to their God of wine and grapes. In all Lebanon the number of wineries went from 5 in 1998 to over 30 nowadays.
Our tour will start by a visit to Clos St. Thomas. It is a winery that has won a lot of international gold medals. There are underground caves carved in the rocks that keep the wine in ideal conditions. You will visit it, learn about wine making and get to taste its exquisite wine.
Our next stop will be in Massaya. Massaya, whose name is Arabic, for the delicate beauty of the Bekaa’s twilight, with its French and Lebanese partners. It was for Anis “Arak” in 1994. In 1998, it became for the wine and “Arak’.
Will have lunch in a very special place, in a restaurant named Chateau Khoury.
The last visit will be there in Chateau Khoury. Chateau Khoury enjoys a privileged location on the eastern foothills of the Lebanese mountain at an altitude of 1300 m. There philosophy is to produce high quality wine so as to express the characteristics of the Lebanese climate and of the particular terroir of Chateau Khoury.
In another tour you will have the chance to see other prestigious wineries in the Bekaa valley.
As usual, you will enjoy memorable moments among friends! It’ll be great!
