Israel

Israel has a sophisticated domestic market for its wines, and a large diaspora to follow them overseas. Dating back several thousand years, wine production in Israel has waxed and waned under Jewish, Muslim and Christian domination. The modern industry started in earnest in the 1880s with a massive injection of capital from the Rothschild family. There are now over 300 wineries with grape varieties, wine growing and winemaking largely based on the French model. The Golan Heights, Shomron, Samson and the Judean Hills all have their fair share of wineries.
