Despite Confusion over their 'kosher' status, Israel's wines are hitting the global market with a new breed of smaller producers, reports Graham Sherwood
Few wine writers will admit to a lack of knowledge about a particular type of wine - so let me 'out' myself immediately and say I cannot, before researching this article, remember drinking an Israeli wine. I do suspect, however, that I am now alone
One of the main reasons for this is the strong association that Israeli wines have with both the religious and ceremonial aspects of the Jewish faith. Many outsiders, perhaps like myself, may have had the view that Israeli wine, much of which is 'kosher', was not for them and made mostly for home consumption.
