started off with a brief video , following a tour of the beautiful caves and a wine tasting! We got to taste 2 reds, 1 white, 1 rose and 1 sweet wine! Ended up buying 4 bottles from the gift shop for a decent price! Shoutout to Josephine who gave us a tour of the caves!

I came with a guided tour as part of a full day package. We were running late so only had a short time at Ksara.

We did a whistle stop of the caves and then gathered for the tasting upstairs. The guide was sweet and knowledgeable, but not very professional ... the pouring and presentation was very below par, the wine however was delicious and the shop downstairs offered their whole range at very good prices. After having drunk their wines in South Africa and Dubai it was great to be where it was produced.

I’m glad I came, but the tour does need a bit more polish to live up to the brand and surroundings.

The short tour was exactly what we hoped for since we did not want to spend too much time. It is students who guide you through the underground wine cellars and tell you a bit about the history. For us, totally sufficient. The wine tasting was also ok. Of course, if you are really into wine and you have specific questions it's possible that the staff is not as knowledgeable as you would find, for example, in the Okanagan valley. But everyone was really friendly and I liked the wine.

The site is beautiful but we were largely disappointed with the quality of the tour and degustation.
The guides are mostly students who keep repeating the same script and can't answer any technical question. Also we were very disappointed with te quality of the wine used for dégustation and the same guide who serves as wine connoisseur and can't entertain any discussion around wine. Will not bring any visiting friends over there again.

We came here as part of a day tour to Baalbek. The tour here is quite good, consisting of 10 minute video on the history of the winery (available in French or English), a tour of the ancient tunnels used for cellaring and finally (the most important part) the tasting. Wines here are good. We were given a tasting of a chardonnay, rose' and cabernet sauvignon, as well as a dry red blend. I have had better, but the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon was delicious and very reasonably priced at USD$13 a bottle from the cellar door. Worth a visit for anyone who enjoys wine
