OMGD Israel Wine Tasting
Beit Yitzak, May 11, 2017
Enjoying top wines at Alexander Winery

On a cool May evening, Bailliage members gathered at the Alexander Winery located in the small village of Beit Yitzhak in the Sharon region of Israel (about 35 kms from Tel Aviv).

The group was welcomed by the owner, Kobi Shalom, who introduced the family business considered to be one of the finest boutique wineries in Israel.

After a quick tour of the facilities everyone had the opportunity to taste some of the best Alexander wines, including:

- Sauvignon Blanc 2016
- Rosé 2015
- Sandro 2014
- Cabernet Franc 2013
- Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Alexander the Great’ 2012
- Grand Reserve 2011

The tasting was accompanied by a lavish buffet a feature of which was some of Israel's finest cheeses. As each wine was served Mr Shalom gave detailed explanations of the production. He also talked about the history of the winery and how from a very small winery it has become a success story.

On behalf of the group, Bailli Délégué Ron Fogel thanked Mr Shalom for a wonderful evening.
