Situated just 30 km South-East of Beirut in the southern end of the Bekaa Valley, the Château Musar vineyards are famous throughout the whole wine drinking world for the quality of their wines and the great history that lies behind each bottle produced. Gaston Hochar founded Chateau Musar in 1930 inspired by Lebanon's 6,000 year wine making tradition and his travels in Bordeaux. Gaston's son's sons are Ronald Hochar and Serge Hochar who became the Château Musar winemaker in 1959 and was named Decanter's first man of the year in 1984 for dedication to winemaking.

Diplomático rum is the essence and soul of the man on its label.
Our journey begins as only the greatest stories do: with an outstanding man. His name is Don Juancho, a man with an adventurous spirit and a passion for rum. Legend has it that this Venezuelan Mantuano (a local nobleman) explored the world tirelessly, searching for the finest and most exotic spirits.

Champagne Enthusiasts of the world, unite and come over!
A great champagne for BRUNO PAILLARD is – above all – an “assemblage”, blending: of diverse crus, grape varieties and vintages.
It is about the constant desire to capture the quintessential finesse and elegance which champagne can bring when it is served with love and care.
The style is a marriage of elegance and complexity which is manifested as a light and smooth effervescence, a remarkable purity, a true freshness and a silky texture.
“It’s the passion that the family brings firstly to the growing of the grapes then to the making of the wine. Our philosophy is to do as little interference as possible and make the wine as pure as possible. We think of it very much as a Ridgeview effort. When I look at the wine, it’s something that everybody has contributed to and it’s what we do together that makes it work.” Mike Roberts MBE Founder of Ridgeview.
