Israeli Wine

 

Wine has been produced in Israel since Biblical times, perhaps longer than anywhere in the world. According to the authors of the Old Testament (Tanakh, “Hebrew Bible,” etc.), Noah planted the first vines once the great flood subsided. From that point, there are several references to wines consumed by Moses, Micah, King David, and most notably Jesus. Ancient equipment has been found in archeological sites as well as beneath parts of modern day facilities in the Golan Heights and as far as the Negev Desert. Israel made contributions to this growing industry, which spread throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean. A document dating to around 1800 BC was discovered stating Israel was “...blessed with figs and vineyards producing wine in greater quantity than water.” However the wine that was available was often doctored with botanicals, honey, and other additives to make it more palatable.
