Founded by wine world legend Gaston Hochar in Lebanon’s Beka'a Valley in 1930, and persevering through a century of upheaval, Chateau Musar has defied the odds to become a world-class winery. Renowned for their propensity to age as well as the best of Burgundy, Bordeaux and the Rhône, often combining the characteristics of all three as they do so, Chateau Musar wines are up there with the best in the world.

For those new to the wine, the Chateau Musar Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault from vineyards near the Bekaa Valley villages of Aana and Kefraya on gravelly soils over limestone. Planted from the 1930s onwards, yields are low from these mature bush vines (average age: 40 years). After 4 years’ bottle maturation in the deep stone cellars of Chateau Musar, the finished wines are released a full seven years after the harvest.

Chateau Musar

Gaston Hochar started Chateau Musar in 1930 in Ghazir. The Hochar’s are of French origin but stayed after the crusades. They have taken up the region’s 6,000 year old wine heritage as Lebanon’s best wine producer. Remarkably they have made wine every year, except 1976 and 1984, even through civil wars. Their long lived red blends Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Cinsault. Uniquely it is only blended after 3 years in separate barrels, then aged for another 4 before release.
