Château Kefraya lies in the heart of the Bekaa Valley, lining the steep terraces of Mount Barouk. The Bekaa Valley's impeccable climate includes 300 days of sunshine and some 1200mm of average annual rainfall. Along with the Valley's fertile soil and slope of terrain, the area's components make it ideal for grape cultivation. Surrounded by over three hundred hectares of vineyards, Chateau Kefraya's stately home is nestled between the beautiful and luscious cypress and cedar trees on a site that ranges from 900 to 1100 meters on clay-chalk soil.
The chateau's first vineyards were planted as far back as the 1950's and more than a quarter of a century; the vineyards have been yielding flawless wines, making their first appearance in the Lebanese market in 1979.
Since then, Chateau Kefraya has established itself as a key winemaker in Lebanon and abroad, becoming available nationwide in Lebanon and exported to 35 countries worldwide. Although 70% of Chateau Kefraya's wines are red, the estate has been producing white, rosé, sweet wines and Arak for many years now.
The red wines, created from five varieties of grapes, provide a unique taste and a complex aromatic bouquet that is ever-changing with the aging of the respective labels and vintages.
Since its establishment as a premier wine producer in Lebanon, Chateau Kefraya has gained international praise from Europe, North America, and Asia. To create the most perfect blend of flavors and tastes, Chateau Kefraya's founder, President and Chairman, Mr. Michel de Bustros, has brought to Kefraya the classical and noble French vines Cabernet-Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah.
