Fodor's Expert Review Clos de Gat

Beit Shemesh Winery/Brewery/Distillery Fodor's Choice
Winemaker Eyal Rotem puts a premium on quality at this boutique estate winery that produces 90,000 bottles a year. While it's not kosher, the winery prides itself on its participation in ancient and modern Jewish history: it houses a 3,000-year-old-winepress and during the 1948 war served as the base for Itzhak Rabin and his Har'el Brigades. Many Clos de Gat wines age beautifully, including the Sycra series, which has garnered international accolades. The tour and tasting fee is deductible with the purchase of six bottles.
