Today, the valley is a green fertile plain where oranges, cotton, sunflowers and corn grow. Multitudes of sheep and cattle graze contentedly. It's also the home to Jezreel Valley Winery, dedicated to crafting boutique Israeli wine.
Feasting With White And Red
The wine retains its fresh flavors and beautiful aroma. This is a dry wine but with nice fruit notes. Although the website notes it's perfect for the hot Israeli climate, it is certain to be welcome this summer on your patio, too.
Reviving A Rare Grape
Adumim is a deep, delicious red. Each of the three varieties is aged separately for 20 months in oak barrels. The grapes harmonize perfectly in a dark ruby wine with an aroma of black cherry. On the palate there are flavors of plum, chocolate and smoke. The tannins are sleek and smooth, leading to an extended finish.
Adumim and Levanim represent something new from an ancient valley. Uncork and discover the modern style of Israeli wine.
