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.
