Chateau Khoury Wines
Today the vineyard covers 15 hectares around the Château. The construction of the winery began in 2002 and was completed in time to host the first vinification in 2004. After studying oenology at the Faculty of Reims, Raymond and Brigitte’s son Jean-Paul returned to the château to add the knowledge he acquired during his travels to the best French vineyards to his parents’ wine-making experience. Château Khoury enjoys a privileged location in the eastern foothills of Mount Lebanon at an altitude of 1,300 meters.
The vineyard’s altitude gives the vines exceptional exposure while maintaining the aridity of the plain in summer. The chateau overlooks the city of Zahle and offers panoramic views of the Bekaa valley and Mount Hermon. The buildings are built of cut stone, and they respect the purest traditional Lebanese style in order to blend in with this postcard landscape.[read less]
