The Forest & The C - An Evening of Great Wines. Yatir & Domaine Du Castel

  • Jul 22, 2010 · 7:00 PM
  • Quint, Miller & Co.

Yatir and Domaine Du Castel are considered to be among the best Israeli wineries -- ask Robert Parker, Tom Stevenson or Hugh Johnson who gave them rave reviews. Better yet, experience them yourself.

Yatir, a "New World" styled Boutique winery, is located in the Yatir Forest near the Dead Sea on the grounds of 3,000 year old wine making facilities. It proves that in Israel you can not only grow quality grapes in the dessert, but also produce internationally awarded superb wines.

The French influenced Domaine du Castel is a family owned Boutique winery located near Jerusalem. Eli Ben Zaken transformed the winery into a world-known entity winning Decanter Magazine's Wine of the Month award twice in one year, a remarkable feat. It's Bordeaux styled wines received many prestigious international awards.

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

    This tasting was GREAT! We had the opportunity to do 3 "blind tastings" and everyone enjoyed it a lot. Domaine du Castel gets its grapes from Kibbutz Tzuba's vineyards; the Kibbutz established a winery a few years ago. So, we blind tasted Castel's and Tzuba's Chardonnays and Cabernets. Most of the us thought that "B2" and "C1" were the better wines and should cost more. These were Castel's Chardonnay and Patit Castel. We later blind tasted Yatir Forest 2006 against 2003 (from my own collection) and everyone detected the smoothness that comes with aging. We will do more blind tastings in the future.

    The other Castel and Yatir wines were also world class!

    Gary, our Panel member, presented the wines amazingly. Raffi, Eran and myself played sidekicks. But best of all, the participants -- both Club and non-Club members -- voiced their opinions and it led to a wonderful interaction. So, it was a GREAT tasting. I encourage everyone to come to our tastings, you'll have fun.
