Wine tasting and visiting local wineries
If you can’t take the time for our all-day, all-inclusive cultural wine-tasting tour on Wednesdays, you have the option to join us at one of the wineries we visit during the day.
Carmel Winery – 11 am
A wine tour on the Carmel wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Carmel Winery, of course. Indeed, the vision of the Baron Edmund de Rothschild gave rise to this world class winery, the village of Zichron Yaakov, and Israel’s wine culture that has blossomed ever since.
Join us for an exclusive tasting inside the wine cellars, accompanied with delicious cheeses and some local gourmet snacks. Let us raise a glass together, and celebrate 140 years of wine making excellence from Carmel.
Somek Winery – 3 pm
We have been tasting with our friends, Barak and Hila, at Somek Winery for over a decade.
Indeed, we have raised a glass over many vintages and many harvests together. And so it is with much excitement and honor, that we invite you to be a part of that friendship and taste with us; old friends, and new friends together.
This outstanding garagiste winery is quite possibly one of Israel’s finest. Their wine is simply wonderful. And so as part of our Thursday special, we invite you to raise a glass, meet our friends, enter the winery and barrel rooms, together with these fifth-generation winemakers. Our friends at Somek are the embodiment of the tours that we guide, and the dreams that we fulfil by working the land, harvesting the grapes, and making Israel’s wine scene come to life.
This gentleman is an outstanding agriculturalist, and a wonderful presence in Israel’s grape-growing arena. Most importantly, he’s a friend, and I enjoy taking my guests to meet my friend. I hope you’ll join us.
