Fodor's Review

Trappist monks have been producing wine here since the 1890s. The interior of the 19th-century abbey is an odd mix of round neo-Byzantine arches and apses and the soaring ceiling that seems Gothic in inspiration. Survivors of the Cistercian Order suppressed in the French Revolution, the Trappists keep a vow of silence. But the staff of the wine shop chats with you in English, French, Hebrew, or Arabic. The setting in the foothills is lovely.
