Having put the spotlight on women for 20 consecutive vintages by adorning the bottles’ labels with the work of Lebanese female artists, Château Kefraya is now teaming up with young Lebanese talents to ornament the special edition of Les Bretèches with the launch of each new vintage.
This year, in its fourth edition, Château Kefraya has entrusted young Lebanese artist Ivan Debs with the 2015 edition of Les Bretèches, launched this year at Vinifest, the annual wine festival that took place between October 4 and 7 at the Hippodrome de Beirut. The artist’s masterpiece, ‘Semper Poetica’, features two versions: a woman figure on one of the labels, facing a man on the other. It glorifies poetry and focuses on the concept of human resistance to the system, the struggle to go on, fighting for love and holding onto hope.
Edouard Kosremelli, general manager of Château Kefraya, said: “With Les Bretèches, one of the most popular Lebanese red wines, we offer a platform that we hope will be a springboard for the artist,” he added.
In 2012 it was an illustration by Mazen Kerbaj, while bottles of 2013 held the work of the notorious street artist Yazen Halwani. In 2014, a design by the fashion designer Lara Khoury took over the bottles of Les Bretèches.
