Château Musar Winemaker Dinner

Experience the profound and complex wines of Lebanon’s Château Musar and discover some of the region’s ancient grapes! See menu preview below. 

Chateau Musar was founded in 1930 by Gaston Hochar. In 1959, after studying oenology at the University of Bordeaux, his son Serge became winemaker. The civil war that tore Lebanon apart from 1975 to 1990 did not defeat Chateau Musar; Serge refused to abandon the wine, and lost only the 1976 and 1984 vintages to the war. Owing to his inspiring determination and grand passion for his wines, Serge received the inaugural “Man of the Year Award” from Decanter magazine in 1984. Recognition from Michael Broadbent, at the 1979 Bristol Wine Fair, threw Musar into the international spotlight and helped create a cult-like following. Chateau Musar is one of the most written-about and discussed wines in the world today.

We'll be pouring some older vintage whites and classic reds from this incredible estate.

$150 per person, $50 for the wines alone. Email reservations@barrelroomsf.com for reservations or inquiries. Reservations also available on OpenTable. You may make your reservation at any time between 5 and 8:30pm to participate.
