Chateau Kefraya’s winemaker Fabrice Guiberteau wins an award

Chateau Kefraya’s winemaker Fabrice Guiberteau was recently awarded the prestigious title of Knight of the French National Order of Agricultural Merit. The award was presented to him by Philippe Faure-Brac, who was named the best sommelier in the world in 1992.

The award recognizes Guiberteau’s commitment to the land and his passion for creating exceptional wines. His work has been characterized by a deep appreciation for the terroir and an unwavering dedication to quality. In a statement, Guiberteau said: ” I am paving the way for other winemakers who will come after me.”

The recognition is a testament to Guiberteau’s many years of hard work and dedication to the art of winemaking. It also honors his efforts to build bridges between East and West, which have historically had very different approaches to wine.

Thanks to Guiberteau’s efforts, Chateau Kefraya, one of the leading wineries in Lebanon, has forged a reputation for excellence that extends far beyond the borders of the country, winning numerous awards and accolades.

Known for its commitment to sustainability and its dedication to the preservation of the environment, the winery has implemented a number of sustainable practices, including the use of organic and biodynamic farming techniques, as well as the implementation of a water conservation program.

Chateau Kefraya is one of the big players that have placed Lebanese wine on the international wine map.
