Château Musar, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon – Tuesday 24th July 2018


Think Bordeaux meets Arabian nights…

This month we present you Lebanon, “the Land of milk and honey”…. And wine!

Wines of Château Musar are unique expressions from a country with one of the most ancient wine-making culture, as vines have been cultivated from Lebanon’s high altitude Bekaa Valley for over 6000 years.
Forming part of the fertile crescent where agriculture originated around 10.000 years ago, the sunny Bekaa Valley, 25 miles east of the capital Beirut, is blessed in 2 ways: The vineyards benefit from an altitude of around 1000 metres and the subsequent cool nights serve to lengthen the crucial ripening process and have just the kind of wide range of soil types that encourage the production of high quality grapes.

Musar’s story begins in the 1920s, when Serge’s father, Gaston Hochar, left for France to study medicine and in the process discovered a real love for wine.
After returning from Bordeaux in 1930 he founded Château Musar
In 1959, his son Serge became Château Musar winemaker, while completing his winemaking studies at the University of Oenology in Bordeaux.

This stunning selection of wines gave the opportunity to Chef let his creativity speak in order to offer you an incredible experience that will blow away your senses.
