Israeli Wine Tours
Israeli Wine Tours give you a fascinating glimpse into the history and origins of wine making in Israel, as well as describe its modern renaissance.
Israeli wine tours visit a range of local wineries where you can tour the vineyards and find out all there is to know about the industry and the local varieties on offer. As with all good tours of this nature, you get to taste a selection of Israel wines before you go home and also have the opportunity to stock up on a bottle or two.
One example of a winery on the Israeli wine tours circuit is the Biriya Winery. This boutique winery is only five years old and uses traditional methods to produce great Israel wines with exceptional taste. This particular winery ages the wine in oak barrels for 18 months and is located in the mystical hills of Safed.

- Yarden Katzrin
- Castel Grand Vin
- Yatir Forest

The last twenty years has seen the quality of Israel wines improving beyond recognition. Israeli wineries are now picking up prestigious international awards on a regular basis and their output is spiraling upwards to keep up with demand.
There has also been a broadening of the market, which originally specialized in wine for sacramental purposes, but is now a worldwide competitor for table wines.
