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.

  • Bernardus Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Carmel Valley Marinus 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This is intensely aromatic with notes of pencil shavings, dried rosemary and pressed flowers all swirling around a core of black currant, prune and juniper. Big and smooth in the mouth, it is packed with rosemary-tinged black currant, black plum skin and spicy berry fruit. This is smooth and approachable though it has an innate firmness. On the ...

  • Carmel Road Pinot Noir 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This was a nicely balanced Pinot with decent dark red fruit, leather and spices. Soft drinking and a little bit bolder than some of the other Pinots out there. Would be nice with dinner but no food necessary with this one. Read More

  • Carmel Road Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This smells exotically fruity with lots of pineapple, kiwi and yellow citrus fruit notes all buttressed with light oak spice and a streak of vanilla. Rich and very front-loaded, this enters the mouth like gangbusters but begins to fade rather quickly. Whats here is very attractive- pineapple, lime and very subtle oak influence yielding a rather ... Read More

  • 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

  • I've been powering through wines from Spain, South Africa, and Chile. I've got say that of all of them the Carmeneres ahve been the most surpring.
