Chateau Musar (the word "Mussar" comes from the Arabic "m'zar" - "amazingly beautiful place") was founded in 1930 in the ancient castle of the XVII century Gaston Osharom - banker and financier of Education. New hobby wine so captivated him that turned into a real passion and his life's work. He even decides to send his son Serge in Bordeaux oenologist who received a diploma in 1959 and passed internship at the famous Ronald Barton returned to Lebanon and joins the family business. It should be noted that the Chateau Musar is not the oldest winery, is not among the leaders in terms of production, however, what they did and Serge Gaston Oshar reputation of Lebanese wine on the international market, it is difficult to overestimate. It is a red wine "Chateau Musar" in 1967, which became the "discovery" at the Bristol Wine Fair 1979, began a new chapter in the history of Lebanese wine.

The main office of the company and capacious cellars are located in the castle in the picturesque mountain town gassed with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, 18 km north of Beirut. However, the vineyards are located in the Bekaa Valley, as well as the vast majority of Lebanese wine.

Favorable climatic conditions of the region provide a full ripening of the grapes.
Chateau Musar wines are rarely found in Lebanese restaurants or supermarkets, as 95% of the wine production is exported to France, Britain, Canada and the United States, and now they have appeared in the Russian market. Wine farms exhibited at major auctions held by private collectors such as "Christie's" and "Sotheby's": at the first exhibition of wine "Chateau Musar" was held in 2000 and 2004, the second - in 1979.

Another example of a related area: the owners of the famous Scottish distillery "Glenmorangie" decided to go for a bold experiment - not holding the wire in drums from the port or sherry, and of wine. Along with the barrels of the best Burgundy wines, champagne and Chianti means both "Chateau Musar"!
It is worth mentioning that the views of the Chateau Musar among wine critics are not unanimous. Some experts believe that the wine sector a bit overpriced and the reputation required to not only do a first-class wines, but also skillful public relations: the first success is due to the desire to reward the real economy for the selfless work when Serge Oshar risk to life under the blends was whistling bullets from all sides . During the Lebanese civil war economy has not released all 2 vintages: 1976 and 1984. However, there is no denying that the love for their work, dedication and work of Chateau Musar owners have made it legendary.
