Fodor's Review

Set on an ancient riverbed and vineyard, this winery-guesthouse-gift shop complex is the labor of love of Hannah and Eyal Israel, who moved here in 1998. Pick up a handy map of the property, which includes ancient stone terraces and rock drawings, a small olive grove, and assorted fruit trees and herb bushes. Then ask Eyal to show you around the winery, where he'll share the story of how he came to plant new vines on an ancient terrace with a 1,500-year legacy. You can then sample the delicious kosher wines and learn about Eyal's fascinating journey to winemaking—even create your own customized wine label (NIS 90). At the farm store you can buy wines, local fruit, and local pottery.
