About

Château Ka is extraordinary story of determination and resolve. Akram Kassatly built his winery in the Bekaa Valley in 1973. Shortly after the first wines were made Lebanon was engulfed by war. The winery was forced to close forcing Akram into other businesses. Finally in 2005 he announced that he was going to try again. Today's Château Ka is the only winery in Lebanon that produces wine entirely from their own vineyards. Akram produces both rich, concentrated reds and beautifully fresh, fruity, crisp white wines that are some of the finest in the country. Viticulture- The vineyard is located at 1000m above sea level at the Eastern end of the Bekaa valley. There is very little annual rainfall and drip irrigation is used as necessary. The vineyard was planted in 1998 and all harvesting is by hand in the cool of the morning into 20KG boxes. Winemaking- Upon reception the grapes are destemmed and crushed. Fermentation occurs at 27-28 degrees. Maceration follows for 3 weeks. Free run wine is extracted, and the remaining grapes are then gently pressed. Oak Treatment- Time: 12 months; Type: French; % oaked: 35; % new oak: None.
