Chateau Qanafar was established in 2005 in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley with a goal to produce one of Lebanon's highest quality wines.
Great wine cannot be made without great grapes.
Grapes grown in the Bekaa Valley, which in the first century BC was one of the most important sources of grain for the Roman provinces of the Levant, are of particularly high quality due to its Mediterranean climate exhibiting wet winters (610 mm of average annual rainfall) and warm, dry summers. This weather pattern promotes vine growth without detrimental vigor and disease while encouraging the ripening of berries to full maturity.
Our grapes are grown at 1200m on gently sloping hilltop vineyards, with soil humidity and fertility at just the right levels to promote the growth of deep roots and ultimately, delivery of nutrients at the right amounts for berries of exceptional color and flavor.
This combination of great fruit and a winemaking process that accentuates its varietal characteristics, complex flavor and aroma without exaggerated interference yields the unique wines of Chateau Qanafar.
