Full description
Enjoy exploring the Beqaa Valley and tasting a variety of Lebanese wines at 3 different wineries on a private tour.  The first winery visited on this half-day wine tour is Chateau Heritage. Learn about the production of wine by a family that maintains traditional methods while using state of the art technology to create a variety of wines from the grapes of the Beqaa Valley.  Continue on to Chateau St. Thomas which was established in 1990 by Saïd Touma and his family on a hill overlooking the Bekaa valley. The estate is a vineyard that spreads over 65 hectares and also hosts a wine storehouse for fermentation and ageing. Hear about how the Romans once created the Temple of Bacchus, a tribute to the Roman god of wine in this area. After spending time at Chateau St. Thomas head to a local restaurant for a lunch break. Your tour's final stop will be at Chateau Ksara, the country’s oldest winery, founded in 1857. The winery makes a variety of wines, ranging from red, sweet, dry white, and rosé, and even Arak, the national Lebanese drink.

    The driver was kind and friendly. He shared a great deal of information about the country. Additionally, the wineries he took us to were unique to one another and interesting. We asked if he could take us to lunch or at least a snack between wineries, but he said there was no good place to stop, which seemed unlikely. As a result, we didn't get to eat dinner until 4pm. With wine tasting all day, that resulted in an uncomfortable stomach and headache.
