Lovely place to visit

What a lovely place to visit and to taste some very good red and white wine. We felt immediately like part of the family. Got a very individual, comprehensive and professional introduction to all the wines.

Zichron and Somek: A shared Wine Heritage
Jul 2021 • Couples
Great perspective on family run small wineries, the Dahan's share their home, business and outlooks on wine culture. The tour and tastings are focused, informed well organized and delightfully presented. The wine is great as are the insights to Zichron's viticulture history

Superb Israeli Wine
Jul 2021
This is one of the top-notch boutique wineries in Israel. It is virtually a one-man show, and the owner is friendly and eager to explain his winemaking philosophy. The wines are not cheap, but they are way better than those produced by the big wineries in the district such as Tishbi and Binyamina. They are not kosher but completely vegan. I suggest you phone Ahed to be sure of an appointment, but you can also just try your luck by walking in unannounced.

Was great!
Dec 2020 • Couples
We visited with friends, 2 couples, was magnificent! One hour of piece & quite.
Barak gave us a detailed explanation about his & his wife dream which came true. He answered all the questions that we always wanted to ask about wine and we were embarrassed.
The wine testing was soooo good.
Highly recommend.

Winery Tour and Tastings
Somek is a lovely family operated boutique winery. Barak, the owner, gave us an educating lecture on the art of wine making and the difference between the large wineries and the small ones. His passion for the subject was very apparent. After the quick tour we sat down to a series of guided tastings of Somek’s excellent wines, along with tasty cheeses and snacks. After three glasses the whole group opened up and became one big happy family for a short while. All in all a very pleasant, educating and most of all tasty experience. Worth every penny. Enjoy!

Great wine and hospitality
May 2019 • Friends
Both the wine and the hosts were wonderful. Their love for the wine making - and their personal involvement in each step -including putting the labels on - comes through in the wine. I especially liked the Haderech, and the Chardonnay was nice too.

Amazing visit. Amazing wine.
Jul 2019 • Couples
We actually visited in July 2015 but could not post a review on TripAdvisor at that time. We absolutely loved every minute of our visit to Somek. Barak was an amazing host. Learning about their family, grapes, and wine-making was heart warming and interesting. We felt like friends and left with a case of wine. This weekend we ordered two bottles of their at Zahav in Philly. Love Somek and Barak. Do t miss a chance to visit.

Wonderful hospitality and interesting wine!

Thank you Barack and Hila for taking us ( me, my husband, my father, my friend) without much notice. We were lucky to be sent here by the owner of Manuela ( most awesome Italian restaurant in the area) Barak was patient, welcoming, took time to talk to us, shared five kinds of wine; rose, white, three reds, and Hila served up a fabulous plate of cheeses, olives, crackers that complimented the wine nicely. Two cases are being shipped to us in California- we can’t wait to enjoy them again and share with our friends too! It’s very hard work to do what Barak and Hila are doing, we appreciate them very much!
