When you hear the phrase “wine tourism,” do you immediately imagine yourself nibbling on little cubes of cheese in a secluded winery in southern Italy or sipping a cool glass of Gewürztraminer in Alsace, France? I must admit that lately I’ve been thinking a lot about all the incredible wineries I’ve visited in the Golan Heights.

The best part about the Golan Heights wineries is that all you have to do is jump in your car, and a couple of hours later you could be enjoying yourself in wine country, where there are endless wide open spaces and green fields that are covered with vines full of juicy grapes. In recent years, boutique wineries have been popping up like mushrooms after rain, and there are now areas that refer to themselves as the Israeli Wine Route or the Israeli Tuscany.
