An Evening of Château Musar
Join us as we taste our way through a selection wines from the most famous winery in the Eastern Mediterranean, Lebanon’s Château Musar.
Musar is owned and run by the Hochar family, who are French in origin, but can trace their Lebanese roots back to the 12th century, when they arrived in the Middle East as ‘Preux Chevaliers’. However, it was only in 1930 that Gaston Hochar, fresh from studying in Bordeaux, established his first vineyards in the Bekaa Valley, where the high elevation (up as high as 1500m) tempers the extremes of the hot climate.
Musar sprang to international renown when a group of British wine writers including the legendary auctioneer Michael Broadbent declared it the "discovery of the fair" at the 1979 Bristol Wine Fair. Since then, the iconic wines – inspired by Bordeaux, but often with as much in common with wines from the Rhône Valley – have won countless friends around the world.
We’ll be joined for the evening by a representative of Château Musar’s UK office who will guide us through eight wines, including three vintages of the classic Musar red from three different decades, two of the extraordinary white and one of the rare rosé.
