Wines of Israel has lined up the first extensive tasting in the US for next month.
The organisation said yesterday (22 January) that the tasting, scheduled for 3 February, will be held at the Prince George Ballroom in New York. Over 100 Israeli wines from 20 wineries in the country will feature at the event.
As part of the tasting, Mark Squires, wine critic for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, and Victor Schoenfeld, chief winemaker for Golan Heights Winery, will host two seminars during the tasting, entitled Israel 101.
The event is being organised by the Israel Economic Mission to North America and the Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute.
"This momentous tasting will help bring Israel's winemaking legacy to life for key members of the American wine trade as well as showcase the current state of Israel's thriving modern wine industry," said Michal Neeman, food & beverages executive with The Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute.
