Winemakers in Israel have been producing wine for millennia. Many grape varieties are grown in this typical Mediterranean climate, with plenty of sunshine. The volcanic soils of the North Galil, and the rocky limestone terrior of the central region are especially suitable for growing the best grapes.
Over the past thirty or so years, Israel has experienced a winemaking renaissance with dozens of new producers and winemakers entering the scene. Today, there are hundreds of wineries throughout Israel producing a fantastic array of internationally recognized exceptional wines. Top winemakers each compete to produce the absolute best wine available anywhere in the world. Most of the wines also happen to be kosher.
