Chateau Kefraya

Bekaa Valley

One of only a couple of wineries in Lebanon that you can currently visit without pre-booking, this produces quality wines of all three colours. You might pass up the tour, which includes a tourist train ride through the vines to Roman-era tombs, and concentrate on lunch in the restaurant and a tasting session in the shop.
