OCTOBER 23, 2008 [Golan Heights] Golan day, tanks, and NYC kosher crush
Spent the day in and around the Golan Heights today. It is really spectacular there. Just across the border from Syria. It is wild how you can see Syria as you drive many of the high altitude roads of the Golan Heights. Visiting wineries up in The Golan Heights getting caught behind TANKS that are being transported.

I'm headed up North tomorrow to the Galil region which includes the highly regarded Galil & Golan Heights viticultural sections. Has it only been a week? Can't wait!

MAY 24, 2008 [Golan Heights] Yarden Odem Chardonnay 2006 Organic Vineyard Israel
This Chardonnay is a tasty wine from the Golan Heights in Israel. It is the color of pale gold and has an aroma of flowers, with a hint of banana. Pear and citrus with a bit of oak permeate the palate and leave me with a buttery finish of vanilla ice cream and spiced apples. don't read Hebrew but I believe this wine is Kosher

Neither stuck, but how cool is that?! And taste I did. MORE >>
