Wine Spectator magazine is putting Israeli wines on its front cover for its October 15 issue.
You can see how they rate over a hundred Israeli wines here.
I wondered if the higher-priced wines would tend to be of better quality. So I ran the numbers:
There was an extremely weak correlation (0.081) between price and score.
The best bargains would be the Barkan Chardonnay Judean Hills Special Reserve 2012, with a score of 91 for $25, and the Tzora Judean Hills White 2014, with a score of 92 for $30.
It is notable that the best wines tend to come from the Judean Hills - in other words, in areas that the world wants Jews to abandon to people for whom drinking wine, by and large, is considered a sin.
UPDATE: Tzora Vineyards is actually on the west side of the Green Line (h/t Danny). Others are as well (h/t Ron.)
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 12 years and over 25,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
