Chateau Kefraya

Located in the West Bekaa Valley, the large estate of Château Kefraya has been the Bustros family’s property for generations.

Construction of the Château started in 1946 on an artificial hill used by the Romans to observe their troop movements. Founder and visionary Michel de Bustros undertook massive works to plant Château Kefraya’s vineyards, The first vines were planted in 1951, and in 1979 Château Kefraya started producing its own wine with grapes from its own vineyard, vinified in its own cellar.

The vineyard spreads over 300 hectares of terraced slopes, 1000 meters above the Mediterranean Sea, on the foothills of Mount Barouk in the Bekaa Valley. Clay-limestone, clay-chalk as well as sandy and gravelly soils compose a real mosaic of terroirs. The vines enjoy exceptional sun with no irrigation, mainly trellised with a planting density of 4000 vines per hectare and an average yield limited to 35 hectolitres per hectare. Significant variations in temperatures between day and night ensure a perfect ripening of the grapes and optimal harvest conditions.

In addition to the diversity of soil, Château Kefraya uses a wide and exciting range of grape varieties in its blends, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay and Viognier as well as more unusual varieties such as Carménère, Marselan and Muscat à Petits Grains. A sustainable wine-growing policy allows the vines to flourish, while respecting the expression of the terroir.
