Wine Tour - Wine Tour in Keserwan - Keserwan District

  • This time, our wine discovery journey will be in Keserwan region. We will visit 3 very unique wineries: Chateau Musar, Bzommar Monastery, and Château Sainte-Andrée.

    Our first stop will be: CHATEAUX MUSAR.
    Chateau Musar, famous locally and internationally, is located in Ghazir. The winery was established by Gaston Hochar in 1930. Created in the cellar of an old 17th century castle, Château Musar is the work of a family. The vineyards of Château Musar are located at an altitude of over 1,000 meters in the Bekaa Valley. The wines of Château Musar are known for their complexity and maturity. Château Musar has achieved international recognition, and received many awards.

    You will have the chance to visit this winery, learn about the process of wine making, and listen to a professional seminar about wine tasting while tasting the different kinds of wines.

    Our second stop will be at Bzommar Monastery and Winery. We will visit a unique museum: The Armenian Catholic Clergy Institute at Our Lady of Bzommar Monastery was founded in 1749 and contains one of the great Armenian manuscript collections in the world, as well as significant holdings of Arabic manuscripts. Afterwards, we will visit the monastery’s winery with a guided tour of the cellar, and, last but not least, wine tasting!

    We will then head to Château Sainte-Andrée, a boutique family-run winery in the town of Ghbale. It is located right in front of Jabal moussa reserve, making a perfect place to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding mountains while enjoying fine wine from the vineyards.

    We will have a mouthwatering lunch prepared in the Chateau’s kitchens perfectly matched with the delicious wine!
