Where the journey begins

From Childhood Friends to Israel Wine Guides

Esther Cohen

Esther and Amir were childhood friends from summer camp. Esther made Aliyah from Boston in  2008 and Amir followed thereafter.  After living in Jerusalem, she moved to Zichron Yaakov to pursue her love for wine and tourism.  While studying to be a sommeliers, she ran the visitor center at Tishbi Estate Winery for a year before establishing My Israel Wine Tours™.  She is now mother to two beautiful children, Leo and Maia.


Amir Katz follows a family tradition of wine and spirit traders. His great-grandfather smuggled Canadian whiskey during Prohibition, later opening a wine shop in Boston.  Amir worked for his family from childhood and would eventually train to be a sommelier. Upon moving to Israel, he and Esther began working together and their shared passion for wine and Israel took off.  Today Amir lives in Haifa, running MIWT, guiding groups, and raising a daughter, Gaia.
