Wine & Plenty, a colorful regional festival, brings Israel’s wine industry back to where it all began. The festival will take place on July 5 and 6 in the gardens of Ramat Hanadiv (next to Zichron Ya’acov) at sunset, offering beautifully illuminated vistas of the gardens and the Mediterranean. Guests will enjoy live music, displays of art, photography and crafts, and a tempting array of gourmet foods and other local agricultural items, along with the world-class wines on offer.

The unique ambience of Wine & Plenty, hosted by Ramat Hanadiv for the third time, is also marked with symbolic significance. At the heart of the exquisite Memorial Gardens is the grave of the visionary philanthropist Baron Edmond de Rothschild, who asked to be buried on this site. The baron’s contributions were pivotal to Israel’s wine industry. He imported traditional varieties of grapes to be grown in newly built villages, established the first modern winery in the land and fostered the creation of many others, which gained recognition here and abroad.

Dozens of wineries, from Hanadiv Valley, Emek Hefer and the slopes of Mount Carmel, will be represented at the festival, along with local producers of fine olive oils, preserves and other culinary delights. The size, style and vintages of the wineries cover a broad range, from the venerable Carmel Winery, founded by the baron himself, to boutique establishments such as Somek Estate, Alona, Arens, Voterman, Steinmetz, Bar Ma’or, Sadot, Dada, Ayal, Argov, Shefaya and Amphorae.

The festival is geared towards the general public, those involved in the wine industry, and especially wine lovers, foodies and all those seeking fine wines and epicurean specialties.


The admission fee of NIS 90 includes a wine goblet for tastings throughout the evening, a regional map, tasting workshops and an array of performances.

Ramat Hanadiv, July 5 and 6, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. For details about discounts available, go to: http://wine-ramathanadiv.co.il.
