I am sure that when you think of historical wine regions, Champagne, Burgundy, the Rheingau and Oporto are among the ones that come to mind. But, with over 7000 years of wine making history, the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon belongs in that list.
From the Bekka Valley comes the infamous Chateau Musar, established in 1930 by Gaston Hochar and run by his son Serge Hochar since 1959. Despite the war in Lebanon, Chateau Musar has withstood the test of time. For over 80 years, Chateau Musar has been producing extraordinary wines every single vintage except for two, 1976 and 1984.
