Bravdo - Karmei Yosef, two professors take their lab outside

It is truly shocking how little there is on this winery, using English search. Heck my 4 line posting on their wonderful coupage wine is the fifth result for Bravdo Winey search! Bravdo Karmei Yosef search brings up a bit more, but even then, the hits the information is weak, other than a few postings by Rogov.

The winery is unique and very cool, and I hope you get a feel for what I loved about the place from the posting - my 7th posting on the Judean Hill wineries: ... rofessors/

Thanks Zvi for the use of some of your pictures and your camaraderie! Send my best to your wide and Shabbat Shalom!

Hands UP^

These are truly wonderful wines that will age well and drink ..Well just YUMM.
Had the Coupage and the Merlot for Pesach last year and had some heads spin upon doing a slight sample around the table.
Big wines that drink not so HUGE.. Made well.. Very well.. All the Merlot, Coupage the Cabernet are gone until 2010 Vintage here in the states. Sparse bottles of the Shiraz floating around. YEP came and went just like BR Cohn.. GONE!

Hi David.
This morning we planned on re-visiting Bravdo in order to taste the 2011 Chardonnay, which was not offered at the Jerusalem Kosher Wine Festival.
I called Hadar this morning since it was raining and she assured me that there is no longer a problem reaching the winery since there is a new road. She was correct but my car is covered with mud.
We tasted the 2011 Chardonnay - creamy, buttery, plenty of grapefruit, and in my opinion less wood than 2010 - just lovely.
Retasted all of the other wines - still like the Coupage 2009 best and then the Shiraz 2009. The Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is developing nicely and enjoyed it more this time.
We were fortunate that Hadar mistakenly opened a bottle of Merlot 2010, so we had the chance to compare it to the 2009. Being so young, it was very fruity and a lot of sweetness but the potential is there to surpass the 2009. Hadar gave us the remaining 1/2 bottle to take home for Shabbat dinner.
As usual, great hospitality and good food. We also met 2 people that we knew from previous wine events - a real fun morning.
Shabbat Shalom.
