Varietal: Riesling
Undervalued and frequently mispronounced it offers a wealth of highly aromatic and diverse styles of white wine. Riesling can vary from bone dry, all the way through to lusciously sweet Beerenauslese (BA) and Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA). Its ability to age and transmit the terroir of the vineyard without losing its individual character places it amongst the most noble and academic of grape varieties. Germany is seen as Riesling's Old World home with the greatest concentration in the Mosel Valley, however, plantings have steadily increased across the border in the region of Alsace, France. Most Alsation Rieslings tend to be on the drier side. Even though some Grand Crus contain more sugar, they are still very refreshing and appetizing, due to a high level of acidity.

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.
