Chateau Ksara is Lebanon's oldest winery. Its traditions can be traced back to 1857 when a group of Jesuit monks acquired the property. The Jesuits applied their knowledge of science and agriculture to plant French vines as well as developing two kilometers of Roman caves that proved ideal for the storage of wine.
The Jesuits sold the winery to its current owners in 1973, and Ksara is now the most modern winery in the region as well as the largest producer in the country, with an annual production of over 2.8 million bottles.
