It's worth the drive here to sample the rustic and delicious creations by vintner Gadi Sternbach, who makes nearly everything on the menu, from the bread to the ricotta and the outstanding cured beef, tuna, and salmon. The succulent beef stew and unforgettable glazed onions are cooked in a sauce that uses the winery's own red wines. There are kids' options as well. Seating is in the dining room or on a terrace shaded by leafy trees and flowers. Sternbach is a former tour
guide and can explain the biblical history of the surrounding hills and show you around the vineyards.
