Varietal: Merlot
Merlot has a reputation for producing smooth, velvety wines that vary depending upon the climate and soil type. Warm conditions on clay soils often produce soft, fruit forward styles. Cool, higher elevation sites produce wine with a slightly more austere structure. It still reigns as one of the world's most noble varieties forming the majority of the blend in Bordeaux’s right bank vineyards of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion. It is now prevalent across the world, achieving particular success in South America, California, and Washington. In central Italy, Merlot is either bottled as a varietal or blended with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon to form Indicazione Geografica Tipica's (IGT), known as Super Tuscans.

Country: Israel
The modern era of wine production was kick-started through the investment of Baron Edmond de Rothschild of Lafite, establishing two of the countries largest wineries. With the aid of drip irrigation, necessary because of the distinct lack of rainfall between April and October, the Mediterranean climate provides a hospitable environment for cultivating grapes. The majority of the vineyards are located in the Shomron, Samson and Galilee regions, although vineyards are continuing to pop up in the Upper Galilee and Judean foothills. Although there are 35 commercial wineries and over 200 boutique operations such as Domaine du Castel and Margalit, over 75% of production is controlled by the five largest producers including Carmel, Barkan, and Golan Heights.

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
