Chateau Musar was the first producer in Lebanon to achieve organic certification for its vineyards in 2006. Most are located in the Bekaa Valley, cradled between two mountain ranges running parallel to Lebanon’s Mediterranean coastline where vines have been cultivated for at least 6,000 years thanks to the Phoenicians who were instrumental in bringing vines and wines across the Mediterranean.
Flanked by snow-covered mountains, and nestled at 1000m (3,000 feet) above sea level, the serenely beautiful Bekaa Valley is blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, fresh mountain breezes and an average temperature of 25°C. Remote and unspoilt, the Musar vineyards were ‘organic’ by default before the term was coined.
The Hochar family’s philosophy of respect for the environment means that the 180 hectares of Musar vineyards are managed with minimal human interference and all the wines are made naturally.
All the grapes are hand-harvested by local Bedouins. In the winery, ambient yeasts do the work of fermentation. The bare minimum of sulphur is used and the Chateau Musar Red wines are neither fined nor filtered. Chateau Musar also produces L’Arack de Musar, Lebanon’s purest aniseed-flavoured spirit which will be served during the dinner.
French in origin, the Hochar family arrived in Lebanon with the crusades and have remained there ever since. Having brought the passion for wine from Bordeaux and planted the first vines in their vineyards in 1930, Gaston Hochar, the founder of Chateau Musar started a great family heritage which was continued by his son, Serge Hochar who studied oenology in Bordeaux and was eventually nominated “Man of the Year” by Decanter magazine in 1984; and then continued by his 2 sons: Gaston and Marc who led Lebanon’s most prominent wine-making family into the 21st century and global expansion.
