Located 45 km east of Beirut and known as the “Bride of the Bekaa” and “the City of Wine and Poetry”, Zahlé is the capital and the largest city of Bekaa Governorate, Lebanon. It is famous throughout Lebanon and the region for its pleasant climate, numerous riverside restaurants and quality arak.
A wine producer since 1857, Chateau Ksara is the oldest, largest and most commercial winery in Lebanon. Underneath the old fort (‘Ksar’ meaning fort), a two-kilometer Roman-era cave tunnel (the cellars) provides perfect storage conditions.
