Previously known as Clos de Cana, Château Cana is the story of a man who converted a forgotten land into a vineyard at the very heart of Mount-Lebanon, in a small village called Ras El Harf.
After the Lebanese civil war, many families left the region and their lands. Fadi Gerges, a dentist and also an avid Human Rights activist with a passion for wine went on an exciting adventure: turning the abandoned lands into vineyards. The aim of this project was to encourage the families of around 30 villages to come back to their homes. So, each year, Fadi picked the grapes and shared his experience with the villages’ families, raising their awareness on the process of grapes planting and picking.
Château Cana benefits from an exceptional location in the heart of a serene and peaceful pine valley, Ras el Harf. Celebrated by French poet Alphonse de Lamartine in "Voyage en Orient", the valley later borrowed his name. Located 900 meters above sea level, the vineyard stretches over ancient terraced slopes and enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year.
