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.

  • Boete Carmel Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This cab is absolutely amazing. Big and bold, with flavors of chocolate, blackberries, cherries, and cassis. Aged on new french oak, which adds plenty of smokiness, vanilla, and caramel. Read More

  • Carmel Road Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Velvety raspberry floral aroma. Rosy plum color. Waves of berry blankets the palate leaving a soothing finish possibly requiring another taste. Accompanied by a mushroom bisque, followed duck salad with mandarins at lunch in Carmel. Read More
