Chateau Musar was established in 1930 by Gaston Hochar, who was inspired by Lebanon’s 6,000-year history of winemaking and his own travels to Bordeaux. The Hochar family, who are of French descent, arrived in Lebanon during the 12th Century and have remained there ever since.
Now run by the 3rd generation of the family, Chateau Musar is acknowledged as the benchmark of the region, with a reputation for producing great wines from indigenous grapes that are renowned for their complexity, elegance and extraordinary ageing ability. The wines are produced with a non-interventionist philosophy using organically grown grapes from vineyards located at an altitude of 1000 metres in the famed Bekaa Valley.
