Israel, over the years, has been an increasing competitor within the wine industry. With more and more wineries opening up in Israel every year and many of them winning awards for their wine, drinking Israeli wine has become increasingly popular in recent years. Here are some of the delicious Israeli wines that you should try.
Barkn Winery is the largest winery in Israel and has the most considerable amount of exports to America. This winery was established in 1899 by a man whose simple goal was to make wine for Friday night dinner to share with his family. His predecessor, who took over the winery, grew the business and allowed it to flourish.
Due to its growing demand, the winery moved to a different location, which was extremely costly, resulting in the winery being sold. After that, the winery grew and started exporting to America and the United Kingdom.
Golan Heights Winery
It is the third-largest winery in Israel and the second-leading winery in export sales. Within the region, vines have been growing for thousands and thousands of centuries. Still, it wasn’t until 1972 that a professor visited the area. He was excited about the cold climate and the altitude. He decided this was a great place to grow wine and open a winery.
It wasn’t until 1983 when the winery was officially open, as previously they sent the grapes to a different site. Ever since then, they have grown to be the third-largest winery and the second-largest exporter to America.
