Serge Hochar was more than just a Lebanese winemaker. He was a man with as much class as the wines he produced. When the country rapidly disintegrated in the 1970s, Hochar chose to export his wine rather than halt production. As Lebanon endured its darkest era, Chateau Musar shined through to the world.This was most apparent in 1984 when Hochar was named the first "man of the year" by Decanter magazine – one of the most prestigious wine publications in the world. Nine months following Hochar's death, Tuesday he was honored again at Chateau Musar's 85th anniversary at Palais Mzar.Hochar's relationship with wine mirrored his perspective on life.In his later years, Hochar maintained his extensive travels while gradually handing over winery duties to his sons, Mark and Gaston. When he died Dec. 31 of last year, his wine sold out across the world.
