t the Domaine Du Castel
winery, crates full of small,
plump grapes the color of
blueberries are being loaded into a
machine that removes their stems and
pumps them through plastic piping
into a towering, silver-colored ,vat.
This is how the two-year process of
winemaking begins in a terra cotta
colored building that originally was a
chicken coop and is now considered
the producer of some of Israel's finest
This year, the winery was awarded
the much-coveted four-star rating
in one of the world's premier wine
guides, Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine
Book 2008.
In Israel, "there is a wine revolu-
tion going on when it comes to qual-
ity," says the founder of Domaine Du
Castel, Eli Ben-Zaken, a mild-man-
nered man with thick, wavy hair and
a beard.
A former restaurateur, he began
making wine as a hobby until the top
wine taster at Sotheby's in London
came across one of his bottles and,
much to his surprise, declared it "an
outstanding" find, Ben-Zaken said.
Wines have been produced in these
Judean hills, not far from Jerusalem,

since biblical times. The remains of a
wine press from the Second Temple
period was unearthed near where
Domaine Du Castel's grapes are grown.
But only in the last 25 years or so have
Israel's wines begun to take off around
the world, transforming the reputation
of kosher wine from the syrupy kid-
dush variety to world-class vintages.
"Internation al .exp ertise, modern
technology and dynamic wineries
have ensured continued advances in
quality:' Johnson :wrote of Israeli wines
in his book.
A key turning point in the "coming
out" of Israel's wines came just last
year when Robert Parker, a leading
American wine critic, tasted more
than 40 Israeli wines for the first time.
He awarded 14 wines scores higher
than 90 on a 100-point scale. A major
achievement for any winery, the scores
signified an exceptional world-class
A list of some of Parker's favorite
Israeli wines was published in Business
The highest score, 93, went to a pair
of Israeli red wines: the 2003 Yatir
Forest wine from the Yatir Winery and
the 2005 Gewurztraminer Heights
Wine Yarden, a desert wine from the
Golan Heights Winery.
Some Israelis began studying wine-
making in places such as France and
California, returning home with the
expertise not just on how to make
