Introducing Wine Pros to the Rising Star of the Eastern Mediterranean

Published: January 25, 2020

Covering a dinner from this past fall’s Full Circle Beverage Conference in Chicago which brought together top sommeliers, wine buyers, and industry professionals to taste and learn about Israeli wines, Tasting Panel asserted that this once-overlooked ancient wine region is now “on an exciting path to international renown for its high-quality expressions of noble and native varieties alike.” The eye-opening dinner, the magazine noted, included a lineup of top wines that paired perfectly across multiple courses while also generating excitement from influential voices in the trade. The article included Tasting Panel publisher Meredith May’s tasting notes for the selections, with scores ranging from an impressive 92 points to an astounding 96—truly a wonderful showing for the Wines of Israel.
