With the third generation at the helm, Chateau Musar of Lebanon faces challenges and triumphs alike with aplomb. Nimmi Malhotra reports
For the last 89 years, Chateau Musar has crafted wines with a unique Lebanese signature despite being in a constant state of war and turmoil

For the last 89 years, Chateau Musar has crafted wines with a unique Lebanese signature. That the country has been in a constant state of war and turmoil hasn’t stopped the winery.
