Our last tasting of Musar wines was in February 2010, and it’s safe to assume a lot has happened since then. The Hochar family have made wine under conditions of incredible adversity since 1930, in the Bekaa Valley where gravelly soil, altitude, and mountain shelter provide almost perfect conditions for the old Cabernet Sauvignon Cinsault and Carignan vines. We will taste a range of vintages, comparing flagship Musar to the more forward Hochar Père et Fils second wines, and getting to know the distinctive white, made from indigenous varieties.
