Details

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).
