Superb & Small Wineries - Saslove, Margalit, Sea-horse & La Terra Promessa (NK)

Israeli Wine Lovers Club is delighted to host a night full of superb Boutique wineries - each one with a different "story" and style....
* Yair Margalit is the patriarch of the Boutique wineries in Israel, establishing the Margalit Winery in 1989. He and his son Asaf produce some of Israel's best-regarded Bordeaux style wines in their small winery near the town of Hadera. Yair also consults and teaches wine making
* Barry Saslove, a Canadian born Computer Engineer turned winemaker, established the Saslove Winery in 1998 at Kibbutz Eyal after spending a number of years consulting and teaching wine making. Grapes for these "New World" styled wines come from vineyards in the Upper Galil.
* Ze'ev Dunia, Sea-horse Winery's proprietor, a movie producer turned winemaker, established the Boutique winery in 1999 in Moshav (agriculture farm) Bar-Giora in the Jerusalem Hills. Ze'ev likes his wines to "be different" and has produced some outstanding, and interesting, wines.
* Sandro Pellegrini, the son of a noble Italian family, and his wife Irit established La Terra Promessa Winery in 1998 in Moshav Shachar on the fringes of the northern Negev. Grapes for his Italian-style wines come from Upper Galil and Ramat Arad (in the northern Negev).

    Great wines, exceptional food and wonderful people that is how I sum up the event. Our Panel member Gary, who spent time helping in these wineries a various times, presented the wines and gave a lot of behind the scene information. Raffi, as always, gave eloquent impression of each wine that got a lot of "ya, now I smell/taste this too" kind of reactions. Eran keeps raising the bar at each tasting and make a wonderful spread of cheeses and hors d'oeuvres that had everybody raving.
    Each one of the 27 attendees told me, either during or after the event, that they enjoy it so much and learned a lot about wines and in particular Israeli wines -- so my goal for the evening was accomplished.

    Absolutely wonderful. The Margalit and Seahorse wines are truly exceptional examples of the burgeoning Israeli wine industry. A really fun and delightful gathering. I had a blast.

    Lovely wines and background on the winemakers made for a great experience. Some of the wines are either not available in the US or very limited so the tasting was provided some special treats. Food was well considered to complement the wines tasted.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
