Next, we traveled up the hill to Ramat HaNadiv, to see the outlook of the Mediterranean Sea and the beautiful roses in bloom. The second winery was Somek Winery where the Rudman family enjoyed an intimate tour and tasting with Barak, the winemaker. They even got to see how the bottles were corked. They thoroughly enjoyed the Port-style wine which is made from 50% Cabernet, 50% Merlot, fortified with Italian brandy and aged for 3 years in barrels.
We ate at the Carmel Bistro feasting on pasta, salad and fish.
The Rudman got dropped off at the Hotel at 5pm exactly where they passed out from all that wine and walking!
