​From Biblical times to the present, the Land of Israel has been home to some of the region’s finest vineyards and wineries!

From relatively modest beginnings in the late 19th century, when the first modern winery was established by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, wine production (and consumption) in Israel has burgeoned over recent decades.

There are currently over three hundred wineries, large and small, operating in and around Israel’s five main wine-growing regions.  Each has a unique story; each delivers superb taste.

Check out some of Israel’s finest wineries, from the hills of Jerusalem to the plains of Judea.

WARNING: Before you’re done, you may feel an urgent need to pop the cork on a great bottle of Israeli wine.
