Wine is an integral part of Jewish and Israeli culture.
Half of Jacob's blessing to Judah was connected to wine:
כִּבֵּס בַּיַּיִן לְבֻשׁוֹ וּבְדַם־עֲנָבִים סוּתֹהן
In the days of King Solomon’s rule, there was peace:
"every man under his vine, and under his fig tree,."
Micha's vision for world peace reflects almost the same saying. Ancient Egyptian historians describe Canaan as the best place for wine. Roman historians describe the amazing quality of wine in the Land of Israel. The references go on and on.
A kosher wine tour can be a wonderful experience filled with history, laughter, and tasty delights.
