Next week, 07/30 - 08/02 will be held at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem the annual Jerusalem wine festival. Following what has now become a tradition, the price was again increased and will be this year 80 NIS (about $ 20) for the entrance to the festival starting at 7 pm and open till 11.30 pm, valid only for one night.
Good news, some wineries that were a no-show in previous years will be participating this time.
The wineries in attendance are:Kosher
: Golan Heights Winery, Galil Mountain, Agur, 1848, Lueria, Katlav, Ferency (who dat?!
) Barkan, Segal, Kadesh Barnea, Odem Mountain, Tzuba, Yaffo, Ruth, Gush Etzion, Tulip, Shiloh, Tanya, Arza, Binyamina, Recanati, Dalton, Har Bracha, Jerusalem Winery, Tishbi, Domaine Ventura, Mony as well as Psagot and Ella Valley
. I'm surprised not to see neither Domaine Netofa, Tabor, Teperberg, Tura, Gvaot nor Carmel/Yatir on the list. Perhaps things will be different on the ground.
Not Kosher: Amphorae, Chillag, Pelter, Vitkin.
So, 29 K and 4 not K. Not bad. Me like it!
As well, there will be the usual cheeses, chocolates, olive oils and liquors booths among which: Lavie, Granada, Cider Ramat Hagolan, Liquor Passiflora (passion fruit, tasted it in Raanana, lovely).
Looking forward and will, of course, report back. Would love to catch up there with forumites so please don't hesitate to PM me.
