A 140 year-old underground wine cellar is an auspicious place to hear about wines from owner Amos Meroz, whose hat is always rakishly tilted to one side. Eight tables covered with checkered cloths fill a small space defined by curving stone walls. Dishes of olives glisten on a tiny wooden bar in the dimly lighted room. Scores of wine bottles line the back wall, where you'll find vintages from Israel, Italy, Australia, California, France, and South Africa. You can enjoy
cheese and stuffed grape leaves while learning from an expert. Or just sit quietly with your glass while French songs fill the air.
