Jerusalem Wine Festival at the Israel Museum
Posted by Avital Pinnick on September 10, 2014
This year was our first visit to the Jerusalem Wine Festival at the Israel Museum. We tasted some good wines, some bad wines, wandered around and had a good time. There was plenty of food to go with the wine–cheese, sushi, preserves, and pizza. Most of the wineries were kosher. The ones that weren’t were clearly marked and clustered together, so navigating wasn’t as difficult as I’d expected. Most of the wineries were the large ones like Recanati, Tishbi, and Carmel. I had hoped to see some of the smaller companies, like Saslove, but alas.
The Big Bambu sculpture had free admission during the wine festival. The catch is that you’re not allowed to climb if you’ve been drinking alcohol, so you have to climb before you start sipping.
