I had the pleasure of hosting my parents from Ukraine recently. When you think of the center of Israel, you can’t miss Zichron Ya’acov.
It's a beautiful city with rich history and full of attractions for tourists.
As a big lover of wine the first thing that came to my mind is the Carmel Winery. So I plugged it into my GPS and we went straight there.
The location is very convenient, the winery is close to the city center and there's plenty of convenient parking.
Our tour was in English, and was performed by Keren; a very knowledgeable and lovely guide. She started the tour with a history of the winery, and as her speech flowed on we started to realize how important and impressive this winery was.
She explained to us the process of wine making and modern technologies involved, and she had generous answers for all the questions I posed her. :)
The tour the continued in their shop with tastings. We were offered some very special wines; both red and white.
I have to be honest, I’m not a white wine person, but they somehow managed to open my mind. They encouraged me and exposed me to wines that I couldn't possibly say no, thank you to.
Carmel has a warm and welcoming environment, the wonderful and easygoing staff made our trip memorable and an absolute delight. My parents left the winery happy and enthusiastic, full of new information and a fantastic impression of Carmel's warm hosting.
And as you can imagine it’s not their first winery visit! :)
Thank you for a wonderful day and most delicious wines!
Alona and happy parents.
