Dr. Carlos Guillermo Adem
The biomedical scientist and chemist Dr. Carlos Guillermo Adem, born and raised in Argentina, returned to Lebanon in 1982. He first taught in the Faculty of Public Health at the Lebanese University. In 1985, howevery, he took over the 300 years old and shut down Arak distillery of his family and began to reactivate the production as part of his hobby.
He named his Arak after the nearby temple FAKRA, which was the highest the romans ever built. The civil war in 1986 brought the Lebanese currency to a low point. Foreign brand spirits became too expensive, so local distribution companies searched for local products, which can compensate the foreign quality.

Dr. Adem than collaborated with one of the biggest cooperation Fatal Holding. Therefore his Arak became the market leader. Furthermore, Dr. Adem decided produce wine in the name "Fakra" using its already existing brand awareness as a promotion. In 1999 he started to buy grapes from winegrowers in the Bekaa Valley in order to start produing the first wines in his own winery. He began to sella 50,000 bottles in the first year.
It was a great decision in terms of creating excellent quality wines with he philosophy "Fakra - le vin des dieux, the wine of the gods", which is still valid today. In the meantime, the winery's vineyards contain 28 hectares. Château Fakra produces around 150,000 bottles of wine annually, 70% of which are exported.
