The Negev Wine Route is something surprising! Amid the harsh desert scenery which dominates the landscape of southern Israel, a series of vineyards has been built over the last decade by a number of pioneering and dedicated idealistic people, who love their land, and together with state of the art drip irrigation technology, have grown vines and created wines where just a few years before, the idea would be unimaginable. The vineyards create some highly respectable and well received wines, and offer a very unusual experience for tourists exploring the desert.
Since biblical times Israel was known as a region that made quality wine. Now Israel is seeing a wine-making resurgence with wineries and vineyards across the country making world-class wines. And visiting Israel’s Wineries is now easier with a range of Israel Wine Tours available.
Israel has developed a world-class network of wineries stretching across the country. From the first vineyards built over 100 years ago, the country now has tens of vineyards producing high quality wines.
Israeli wine has long stirred up associations with the syrupy libations of religious rituals, but modern techniques imported from top winemaking nations are now helping it find space on shelves from Paris to New York.
