Event details

Intermediate wine tasting

The Israeli wine scene has matured from a small number of big producers focused on sweet reds into a dynamic industry with around 350 operations. These diverse wines come from five regions and have earned high praise from the likes of Robert Parker, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson.

This tasting introduces ten wines produced from a range of grapes including Marawi, a native variety popular 2,000 years ago and recently brought back to life.
