68 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 21 -April 27, 2000 The Buttery to host prestigious wine event May 10 The Buttery Restaurant in Lewes, known for its sold-out to capacity Wine Maker&apos;s Series Dinners, has been chosen as the host restaurant for a special reception, dinner and tasting of the wines of Chateau Musar of Lebanon. The May 10 event is scheduled in conjunction with the American Tour of wine maker Serge Hochar, who has been the winemaker at this historic and exclusive winery since 1959. The Hochar dynasty has directed the winery for generations. Hochar will be the guest of honor and will participate in presentations and discus- sions along with the U.S. importer Bartholomew Broadhurst of San Francisco and George Fresolone of Century Wines in Wilmington. "We are very excited to host this event and feel fortunate to have Mr. Hochar at- tending as he will be making only a few stops on the east coast," said Buttery owner John Donato. "This is the third time that a wine maker has been on hand for a wine event at the Buttery. We have hosted wine makers from Australia and Italy in the past but the Chateau Musar representative will be especially exciting because of the rich and unusual history of wine making in this region and Hochar's celebrity." Hochar studied oenology at the Universi- ty of Bordeaux. He was made Decanter Man of the Year in 1984, an award created as a result of his daring wine making achievements that astonished the English press in 1979. Running parallel to the Mediterranean coast, the Bekaa Valley where the Musar vines are grown experiences rainfall only in winter with 300 days of sunshine, and the vines remain almost disease and frost free. The cultivatign vines in Lebanon goes back to the '::lrnicians, who introduced viniculture, to many parts of southern Eu- rope. Some centuries later, the Romans chose Baalbek in the east of Lebanon as the site to build the temple of Bacchus as their tribute to the god of wine, which still stands today. Chef Gary Papp, who has received rave reviews for his innovative menus of at least a dozen successful Buttery wine maker's dinners, will be designing a menu that re- flects the diverse cuisine of the region and promises to enhance the enjoyment of the wines Guests of the event will have the op- portunity to compare two vintages of Chateau Musar white and two vintages of Chateau Musar red, including the award winning 1989 vintage. The Musar wine tasting dinner will be by reservation only.
