    I wanted to showcase Israeli whites as alternatives to wines drank at the park, in front of the pool, or watching sunset on the beach. The selected wines were of the best Israel has to offer and I think that they impressed the attendees. We tasted 5 Chardonnays and each one had a different style. The Sauvignon Blancs and Viognier (not shown in the pictures as they were kept cool in the fridge until been served) were beautiful as well.

    I hope that it is noted that our tastings are also foodie events. Eran brought papaya, mango and pineapple in addition to the great cheese selection (some hand-delivered from Israel), all paired great with the wines.

    Rafi presented all the wines artfully, and Gary gave a lot of insights (I chipped-in as well -- can't be quiet when it comes to Israeli wines); but most of all, everyone gave their opinions about the wines and we had a lively conversation. GREAT EVENING.

    Cool White Night was a very well orchestrated event. It provided an excellant opportunity to learn and explore several wine varietals as well as taste gourmet food accompanyments that were artistically presented. The ambience was light and casual. It was definitely a crowd pleaser!

    The evening was both informative and relaxed. In addition to the general information provided about white wines (it was a learning experience), we heard a lot about the development of the wine industry in Israel. Eran put out a beautiful and tasty spread. Kudos to Avi, Eran and Raffi.

    This was one of the best organized, best run and most high valued Meetup I have ever been privileged to attend. The host was friendly and sincere, the fellowship sweet and classy, the educational value tremendous and the wine - well - nuff said about that.

    Of exceptional value!

    Kudos to the Ashmans both Mr. & Mrs. for putting this together and to Gary, Chef Eran and Raful for their ability to make those of us less knowledgeable very comfortable and balancing their knowledge with that of the group. Kudos and thanks to the physical host Al Green as well!

    Highly, highly recommended to all who love, or want to love Israeli wine.

    Mike, you hit the essence of the club right on. EVERYONE IS WELCOMED, aficionados and not, and everyone is encouraged to voice his/her opinion about the wines. Descriptions can be "smells good", "too sharp for me", "I smell apricot", "I taste blueberry" -- and every one counts ! We all learn from each other and we all have fun. So, please come to our meetings and just enjoy the wines Israel has to offer.

    Am sad to say that I am not a cultured connoisseur or aficionado as many of you may be, and my pallet is not "educated" but i did write several a wine column for Kosher Today over a decade ago, spend three days at this year's Israwinexpo in Tel Aviv, and host winery tours to Israel, etc. I am what you would call an enthusiast or a fanatic for Israeli wine and wine makers. I look forward to meeting y'all, getting to know you and learning what I can from you...
