It’s a country that’s rich in wine history, yet its wines remain largely misunderstood and underappreciated by the U.S. market. Why Americans should be paying more attention to Israeli wine.

“Decoding Israeli Wine”
Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Yes, Israel is making great wines.  The quality of fine wine coming out of Israel has been growing exponentially over the past decade. The combination of it’s French winemaking history, ancient vineyards, and current influx of top-notch winemakers is putting Israel on the wine map.

This class is your singular opportunity to experience the greatest wines of Israel, one of the oldest wine regions in the world, dating back over 10,000 years.

The eastern shores of the Mediterranean, and in particular Israel, are the cradle of the world’s wine industry. Winemaking has been a tradition here for over 4,000 years.  It’s a shame that most people only know about the cheap and sweet stuff. Here is your chance  to experience something very special.

The country’s wines have been transformed over the past twenty years. The modern wine scene in Israel is terrific, with excellent wines coming from Galilee, Judean Hills, Negev, and many other regions.  Winemakers have rediscovered ancient vineyards, and are harvesting grapes from high-altitude plots that enjoy cool sea breezes and well-draining soils.    Israel’s wine revolution began with Cabernet Sauvignon, and now has moved toward ancient Mediterranean varieties like carignan and mourvedre.

Kosher, smosher! This is a class not be missed.
