Chateau Musar: behind the new book about Lebanon’s wine icon

The world of wine has a lot to owe Lebanon and its winemaking history. Intertwined within that is the story of Chateau Musar which this year celebrates its 90th anniversary. Sadly its legendary winemaker, Serge Hochar, is not with us to share and lead the celebrations, but his memory and the history of this unique wine producer is captured in a new book, Chateau Musar, The Story of a Wine Icon, the latest publication from The Académie du Vin Library. Here Marc Hochar and Susan Keevil explain how this new book came about.

How to make Lebanese wine during a plague & a revolution

How to make Lebanese wine during a plague & a revolution

Faouzi Issa would prefer life in Lebanon if it was wartime rather than its current dire straits. And he should know. As winemaker and owner of Domaines des Tourelles whose vineyards are in the Bekaa Valley, he has lived through a number of wars. But trying to make wine whilst fighting the invisible enemy of Covid-19 against the backdrop of an impending revolution in Lebanon, is about as tough as it sounds. Peter Dean caught up with him on the UK launch of his new wine – an old vine Carignan – to see how he is coping.

Once travel opens up to Croatia, visitors looking to escape the crowds of Dubrovnik should consider venturing an hour up the coast through the rugged Pelješac Peninsula filled with family-owned vineyards, charming old villages, and rocky beaches. The area is known for its mussels, oysters, and fish sourced directly from the waters, and is a stunning discovery that many tourists have not yet explored.

The Russian Wine Industry from A to Z (2020)

Introduction
Winemaking and wine itself have always played and will always play an important role in the life of Russia, a country with a centuries-old history of winemaking, which has, of course, had its ups and downs. It is believed that winemaking already existed during the time of Ancient Greece, in particular on the Crimean Peninsula and the Taman Peninsula. Wine was always an integral part of imperial receptions and balls. The rapid development of the viticulture and wine industries began during the USSR, but Mikhail Gorbachev’s anti-alcohol campaign seriously undermined the industry. It was only in the 2000s, with the influx of new investments, as well as the involvement of foreign specialists and young Russian winemakers, that a new stage of development began. The quality of wines produced in Russia is improving each year, while the country’s consumption is also rising.

This analytical paper presents the current state of affairs in the Russian wine industry. The concept of "wine industry" includes viticulture, winemaking, the wine market and the wine business.

From concrete jungle to a vineyard, a happy transition for Sijing

From concrete jungle to a vineyard, a happy transition for Sijing

As a child growing up in the bustling metropolis of inner Beijing, Dr Sijing Li was very much the city girl – more interested in words than scientific phenomena.

‘I lived in a city of 21 million people. I had no experience or interest in the natural world’, she concedes.

‘My only passion was reading and collecting books. My high school had a large library and I spent almost every lunch break there, re-shelving books and helping people with their selections’, Dr Li recalls.

‘I think this experience is why I am so fond of cataloguing systems. I know exactly where to look for a particular field of knowledge. It has proven a very useful skill in my research career!’

Why Lebanon, its people & its wines deserve our help.

The devastating explosion that rocked through the port and streets of Lebanon this week also sent shockwaves around the world. But as the dust settles on this unique, vibrant and historic city, the sheer scale of the damage is only just starting to be assessed. It leaves a city, and a country, already on its knees from months of economic and political turmoil that has wiped out people’s savings as its currency has collapsed. Here leading Lebanese journalist and wine critic, Michael Karam, puts this week’s shocking events into context, with a wine industry already dependent on international sales for its future, now desperate for all the support the international wine community can spare it.

Archaeologists Uncover Evidence Of An Ancient Pub In Central Europe

To the northeast of Slovakia, along the country’s border with Poland, is an enchanting region known as Spiš. Castles and ruins dating back thousands of years pepper the scenery. Their prominence is impossible to ignore, seemingly capping every crest of the undulating landscape. Far easier to overlook, however, is the abundance of history hidden beneath the earth. That’s what attracted archaeologists to a small village here in October of last year. For six months they dug and dusted below the town hall of Spišské Vlachy (pop. 3,457). And for the first time we have an idea of what they found.

Like the writers of the Tang Dynasty, it’s easy to wax poetic about wine. It’s liquid, jewel-toned joy. It’s lush and brimming with memory, like the many global soils it stems from. But at the end of the day, we’re just talking about fermented grape juice, right?
