Yatir and Domaine Du Castel are considered to be among the best Israeli wineries — ask Robert Parker, Tom Stevenson or Hugh Johnson who gave them rave reviews. Better yet, experience them yourself.
Yatir, a “New World” styled Boutique winery, is located in the Yatir Forest near the Dead Sea on the grounds of 3,000 year old wine making facilities. It proves that in Israel you can not only grow quality grapes in the desert, but also produce internationally awarded superb wines.
The French influenced Domaine du Castel is a family owned Boutique winery located near Jerusalem. Eli Ben Zaken transformed the winery into a world-known entity winning Decanter Magazine’s Wine of the Month award twice in one year, a remarkable feat. It’s Bordeaux styled wines received many prestigious international awards.
Sit back, relax and join other wine lovers at the Israeli Wine of the Month Club’s interactive wine tasting experience.
