The week of September 6th I took 18 Slovakians on a week wine tour. We started when they got off the plane at Tishbi Estate Winery. They enjoyed a tasting of some newly released red wines with a pairing of Valharona chocolates.
The second day we traveled up to the Galilee and enjoyed a stroll through Tsfat to wake up. We enjoyed a lunch at Adir Winery of kirshe, salad, bread, cheese and of course wine. We then traveled to Naaman Winery where they all tasted the full range of Rami's boutique wines.
We finished the day at the Golan Heights Winery where we enjoyed a tasting in the private room downstairs with 7 wines, including the Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 which was simply delciious.
The third day we traveled to the Carmel Region and visited Ramat HaNadiv, Rothschild's Botanical Gardens to wake up in the morning. This day we only visited two wineries; Amphorae and Somek Winery.
The group enjoyed the intimate feeling of Somek Winery.
The forth day of the wine tour we visited the Jerusalem Hills Wineries. I took them to the ancient wine press at Tzuba Winery. They enjoyed a tasting at Tzuba Winery, Agur Winery and Tzora Winery. We ended the day with lunch at Margot Cafe.
The fifth day, was a day of relaxation so on the way down to the Dead Sea they visited Yatir Winery. When they drove down to Eilat they also stopped at Sde Bokar winery.
During Sukkot, I received a call from Adena Mark of Adena Mark Israel Concierge Services to set up a tour for Noam and his crew of 4 people to Carmel Region and Galilee Region.
I coordinated their kosher wine tour to Tishbi Estate Winery
and Carmel Winery in the Zichron Yaakov area. I created the itinerary for them and called the wineries to set up their tours. It was a very busy time for the wineries since it was a major holiday in Israel and the wineries were packed! They had a great time touring Tishbi Winery and sitting under the natural sukkah.
At Carmel Winery
Valerie gave them a tasting in the visitors center and they got a self-guided tour of the old barrel room which now houses barrels of brandy.
The next day they traveled from Haifa to Dalton Winery where they got a private tour by the winemaker and they got to meet the CEO of Dalton winery
. They had a blast at Dalton Winery and it was by far their favorite winery of the experience.
Their last wine experience was across the parking lot to Adir Winery
where they received a tasting from Tzvi.
As Noam commented to me via email "Overall trip was amazing, well worth the price, and considering we booked last minute, very much appreciated."
