Carmel Winery is the historic winery of Israel. It was founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, owner of Château Lafite in Bordeaux. Carmel owns the two largest wineries in Israel, at Rishon Le Zion, south of Tel Aviv and at Zichron Ya’acov, south of Haifa. Each has deep underground cellars built by Rothschild in the 19th century. Carmel Winery has 1,400 hectares (3,472 acres) of vineyards, which cover the land of Israel from the Upper Galilee in the north, to the Negev in the south. Carmel’s winemakers can therefore choose from vineyards with different terroirs from all the wine regions in Israel. Carmel has a particularly strong vineyard presence in the cooler climate Upper Galilee, from where many of the leading wines are sourced. Carmel produces 15 million bottles a year, including wines of every style and at every price point. These range from Carmel Limited Edition, the flagship of the winery, to Selected, Israel's largest selling brand.

  • Carmel Road Monterey Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Bright fruit greets the nose though it gains a jammy accent fairly quickly built upon a base of smoky, toasty oak vanilla oak, though there are some subtle herbal accent here adding some detail. Round, supple and mouth filling, this is a crowd pleaser to be sure. The balance here is excellent with plump, sweet black cherry and almost black curra... Read More
