Overview

Wine is an integral part of Jewish and Israeli culture.

Half of Jacob's blessing to Judah was connected to wine:

כִּבֵּס בַּיַּיִן לְבֻשׁוֹ וּבְדַם־עֲנָבִים סוּתֹהן

In the days of King Solomon’s rule, there was peace:

"every man under his vine, and under his fig tree,."

Micha's vision for world peace reflects almost the same saying. Ancient Egyptian historians describe Canaan as the best place for wine. Roman historians describe the amazing quality of wine in the Land of Israel. The references go on and on.

A kosher wine tour can be a wonderful experience filled with history, laughter, and tasty delights.

I would like you to experience it in the best possible way.

Today there are hundreds of boutique wineries all over the country. Most of them have been awarded international prizes, and all of them have a unique story.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Ancient Shiloh (Tel Shiloh), Road 60 Israeli Settlement, Shilo 483000 Palestinian Territories

Ancient Shiloh is the site where the Tabernacle stood for 369 years.

During these years Shiloh was the capital of the Jewish people.

In Shiloh, Joshua divided the inheritance to the tribes of Israel.

In Shiloh Hannah prayed and we learn from her how to pray to this day.

This fascinating site offers a unique biblical experience, an opportunity to touch the past.

The site has plenty of antiquities and a visitor’s center that provide us with the experience of going back in time to the days of the Mishkan.

Hannah prayed and was responded at this place 3000 years ago, since then many more people have tried this place for their prayers and many of them have also were heard.

You are invited to experience the ancient Shiloh as part of a tour of the best of Binyamin together with Jewish Israel tours.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Psagot Winery, D.N. Mizrach Binyamin 15-minute drive north of Jerusalem. Israeli Settlement, Kokhav Ya'akov 90624 Palestinian Territories

Psagot Winery is located near the Michmash crossing, the same place where the battle between Yonatan ben Shaul, king of Israel, and the Philistines took place.

This boutique winery, which won international awards, began with a dreamer who made a winery in the parking lot of his home. But the need for a cheap cooling place made him look for ancient caves in the area.

He found a small opening of a cave filled with dirt. After months of excavations, he discovered an ancient cave that was used as a winery 2000 years ago. In the cave he found a coin from the time of the Great Revolt against the Romans. On the coin was an amphora, an ancient wine vessel. Jacob Berg decided it was a sign...

The winery has become one of Israel's leading boutique wineries.
