Israeli Wines

After our drive through the Carmel Forest near Haifa a few weeks ago, we stopped by several wineries which have developed quite a boutique following in recent years.   We tasted, talked, and bought a few bottles at each location.  Our favorite stop was at Tishbi, where they sell table wine in jugs direct from the barrel for 19 shekels/liter (about $5.25).  We tasted it first, and quite enjoyed the shiraz / cabernet blend.  If only this place were closer to home for refills!

In the parking lot I saw a new sight - an Egyptian license plate.  We wondered what brought them up north, maybe the fine wines?
