Tishbi Estate Winery

  • Winery/Brewery/Distillery

Updated 01/06/2015

Fodor's Review

Set among the hills and valleys of this pastoral area is one of the country's most esteemed wineries and premier labels, Tishbi Estate. (the Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are among the best in Israel.) The vines were planted here 120 years ago. At the new country-style visitor center, you can pair a French Valrhona chocolate with a Tishbi wine, or enjoy breakfast, brunch, or lunch under the grapevines in the courtyard. Apart from wine are local cheeses, olive oil, honey, and wine jellies at the shop. Call ahead to arrange a one-hour tour, which includes tastings and a visit to the old alembic distillery, where their prized brandy is made. It's about 3 km (1½ miles) north of Benyamina.
