Great visit

Well worth booking a trip around the winery and some wine tasting. Leaving there a little merry a walk around the town with some strong coffee is what is needed!

This is the mother of all Israeli wineries, the origin of today's modern operations. Established by the French branch of the Rothschild family in the mid 1800's to produce primarily ceremonial wines, you'll discover an amazing selection of French style wines that rival the best of France.

We did tasting at the winery. The woman who did the tasting could not have made us feel more unwelcome. She was not interested in answering any of our questions about the winery or the wines. She stared us coldly while we drank the wine. The wine was completely unremarkable - very mediocre. Save your shekels and go elsewhere!

We were staying up the block. The wonderful odor of the skins lured us to the tasting room, though we were planning to go in anyway. Tasted 6 or 7 wines. When he opened a spoiles bottle he opened a new one. No charge for the tasting. No pressure to buy. Great explanations

Carmel is the oldest windery in Israel. Wonderful winery and the Center for Wine Culture where you will taste the wonderful wines. The town Zichron, Yaakov has many wonderful shops, restaurants and coffee shops.

The tour combined the history of Zichron Yaakov and wine making in Israel. Our guide had many interesting facts. It was an enjoyable activity for teens and adults. Our guide was very considerate in accommodating our special needs. Highly recommended!

Four of us visited Carmel Winery. Yossi, the wine expert who works there gave us very good explanations in English (and a few Hungarian words when we left) and let us taste 6 different wines, stating the different blends and explaining as much as we wanted. We were very pleased! You can buy every wine that the shop holds, and... More
