ABOUT THE BOOK
Winemaking is never easy – but in the case of Chateau Musar, the most famous wine to come out of Lebanon, there have been times when it has been almost impossibly difficult. Serge Hochar would say “in Lebanon, difficulties are our habit. We are addicted to difficulties!” and he famously continued to make his wines regardless of the bombing and shelling attacks
going on around him. This is his story, and the story of Gaston, Marc, Ralph and Tarek, the new generation that follows him, carrying on the tradition of making wines of charisma and character with minimal interference. It is a tale of our times; winemaking at its most instinctive and natural, inspired by Mother Nature, and resonating powerfully with the spirit of survival that has sustained the Hochars’ troubled homeland, Lebanon.
Format: 246 x 189 mm, 224 pages, hardback, colour throughout.
