Saturday, May 28th
Wines of Israel ($)

Wine has been made in Israel for thousands of years, but it's only fairly recently that it is achieving its fullest potential. With its long Mediterranean coastline, mountains, and deserts, Israel is emerging as one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine producing countries in the region. In this session, we will taste a range of wine from throughout Israel, discuss what makes them so unique, and explore what's next for the great wines there. Guests must be at least 21 years of age to participate. Cost is $30 per person.
