Château Ka, Lebanon

Château Ka is an extraordinary story of determination and resolve.

Akram Kassatly built his winery in the Bekaa Valley in 1973. Shortly after the first wines were made, Lebanon was engulfed by war. The winery was forced to close and Akram moved into other businesses. Finally in 2005 he announced that he was going to try again. Today, Château Ka is the only winery in Lebanon to produce wine entirely from their own vineyards. Akram creates both rich, concentrated reds and beautifully fresh, fruity, crisp white wines that are some of the finest in the country.

Viticulture

The vineyard is located at 1000m above sea level at the Eastern end of the Bekaa valley. There is very little annual rainfall so drip irrigation is used as necessary. The vineyard was planted in 1998 with all harvesting done by hand in the cool of the morning into 20KG boxes.

Winemaking

Château Ka boasts the most modern winery in Lebanon. Modern, temperature controlled stainless steel tanks are used for fermentation with the red wines undergo further ageing in top quality French oak.
