Manchester Wine School is thrilled to host this one off special tasting of wines from the wonderful Chateau Ksara.
Founded in 1857 by Jesuit priests, Chateau Ksara today produces wines in the heart of the Bekaa Valley, farming vineyards at well over 1,000metres. As Lebanon’s oldest winery, they have made it their mission to not only continue the unique, centuries-old practice of winemaking, but to also implement the newest and most innovative processes. Pesticides and herbicides are not used, so the grapes are grown almost organically. This coupled with Bekaa’s formidable terroir result in wines which have won awards all over the world.
Hosted at Comptoir Manchester, a middle Eastern restaurant full of bold flavours and the region’s generosity, we will take you on a Eastern Mediterranean culinary journey to discover this beautiful country, tasting eight of Chateau Ksara’s wines and dining on delicious Lebanese cuisine.
But that’s not all! We delighted to be joined by Michael Karam, wine writer and author of “Wines of Lebanon” and the co-owner of ChateauKsara, George Sara. An amazing opportunity to learn about Lebanon, its history, its gastronomy and of course wine story.
Price includes a selection of 8 wines paired with delicious Lebanese food.
Places are VERY Limited, so book early!
