Binyamina Night in New York

The Binyamina Winery was founded in the heart of the town of Binyamina, but has a history that goes back to it pre-winery days. In 1925 a perfume factory was establish by Baron Benjamin de Rothschild, after whom the town of Binyamina is named. The factory site was chosen due to the jasmine plants that grew profusely in the area, and which were needed to produce perfume extracts. After a few changes it became a winery, named Eliaz Winery, in 1952. After changing owners it was named Binyamina Winery in 1996

Asaf Paz, one of Binyamina's winemakers, will grace us with his presence and present a wide selection of his creations.

Sit back and relax and join other wine lovers at the Israeli Wine of the Month Club’s interactive wine tasting experience.

    19 wine lovers braved the cold weather and came to the Binyamina Winery tasting. We were treated to Asaf Paz's wine knowledge, enthusiasm and warm personality ( in spite his early morning arrival from Israel .) Timna Shetrit, Binyamina's marketing director joined us later. Binyamina is re-transforming itself and has upgraded the wines' quality as well as the portfolio and we tasted some interesting blends. How about Petite Syrah/Zinfandel or Cabernet Sauvignon/Viognier? The great wines were paired with a selection of Kosher cheeses that Eran, our Chef Panel member, presented to us. Asaf worked in the restaurant business a number of years ago so it was great to hear the exchange of ideas, regarding food and food-wine pairing, that he had with Eran. Asaf also had a lively exchange of ideas with Raff regarding the wines. So, all in all, it was a great tasting.

    Great way to learn how to judge and and at what age and temperature to serve wine. Learn about wine making techniques. And most importantly enjoy the wine and cheese that is served.
