History & Geography
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 of the process of grapes planting and picking. Naturally, as time went by, Fadi became a winemaker, accumulating over 20 years of expertise in the field. In 2018, this family owned winery welcomed the 3rd generation on board. Joanna Gerges breathed new life into the business and introduced a few changes, namely a rebranding from “Clos de Cana” to “Château Cana”. Amidst the most challenging turmoil Lebanon has seen in its modern history, Joanna not only resolves on taking on the challenge yet embraces it with everything she has.
