“Jewish” wine, that is, wines from Israel, have become far more than the syrupy sweet Manischewitz cough syrup that my generation grew up with at home and at synagogue.
Israel grows and processes a wide variety of very fine wines of all types, available at all prices.
We will be enjoying them at our Passover seder…no reason for my Christian friends not to enjoy a nip or two to celebrate the Easter holiday…
Wines of Israel for Easter
Easter is almost upon us and with such, my wine thoughts often turn to wines from Israel.

At ProWein this week I had the opportunity to taste through a series of wines from Israel with my favorites being Tishbi from the Negev region, Golan Heights and Galil Mountain from the upper Galilee region. Many of the wines from these specific wineries would make an authentic and delicious addition to your Easter dinner.
The wines of Israel are no longer being reserved only for traditional Jewish culture, but are being readily imported to both New World and European markets alike. And for good reason – they are not the sugary, sweet grape juices of old. Many of Israel’s wines boast numerous awards and accolades and are being well represented in international wine competitions on an annual basis.
