Art in Wine Making - Chateau Golan (Not Kosher)

  • May 17, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • Quint, Miller & Co.

The proprietors of Chateau Golan practice the art of - and the art in - wine making. From their beautifully designed winery, papered with many artifacts and the home of a number of art exhibits, they produce French inspired wines in sculptured wine bottles. Chateau Golan, located in Moshav (agriculture village) Eliad in southern Golan Heights, released its first wines in the 2000 vintage under the hand of Oregon and California-trained winemaker Uri Hetz. This Boutique winery releases between 70,000 – 75,000 bottles a year from grapes harvested in their nearby vineyards, including several organic ones.

Shuki Shai, one of Chateau Golan’s owners, will be in town and will indulge us with tasting a variety of his highly acclaimed wines… In case you were wondering – no, he will not bring any artifacts to accompany the tasting, but I am sure that he will talk about it a lot….

The wines are not Kosher

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


What is interactive wine tasting?

* Several wonderful Israeli wines will be explored. Cheese, crackers and fruit also served.
* A panel of our Sommeliers/Wine Critics will describe each wine and guide you in exercising your palate tasting them
* You will be encouraged to voice your opinion about each wine and write elaborate notes -- be Robert Parker, Tom Stevenson or Daniel Rogov for a night...

    As I said a few times before, each event has its own personality -- this is what the club is all about. Shuki Shai, Chateau Golan's owner, gave us so many behind the scene tidbits of information -- not known to wine industry outsiders -- that sometimes we forgot to taste the wine.... The wines, if you ask, were excellent and exceeded my personal expectations (I never drank Chateau Golan wines, but heard great things about them) and I hope to have another tasting in the future with additional as well as different Chateau Golan wines. As an additional bonus, one of the attendees, knew the artist that created the impressive gates of the winery.

    The Panel (Raffi, Gary and Eran) - exceptional as usual - guided the 23 club members/non-members through the tasting of these "old world" inspired wines -- we all thought that the wines stacked-up equally to any high quality wines in that category. Oh, I forgot to mention the great cheese selection and special pastries that Eran made.

    Great evening. The Chateau Golan wines are wonderful and we really enjoyed meeting Shuki and hearing his perceptions on wine. Six wines are perfect for those of us who don't have very refined palates. And on top of the wines, Eran's cheese selection was an education initself.

    I found the meeting very long - 3 hours is too long - and at times very boring. It took almost two hours to taste two wines, then the break, and less than a hour to taste the last four wines. Shuki had a lot of information, he spoke just too long. I also thought the two men on the panel (Rafi and the man in the blue shirt) were pompous and their comments also were too long.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
