Art in Wine Making - Chateau Golan (Not Kosher)

This Meetup is past

9 people went


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...
