Elena brought it to our Passover dinner this year. It is a dry red wine, Yogev Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz Samson made by Binyamina Winery Ltd. in Israel. The label on the bottle says,
“The Yogev label constitutes a mark of esteem and appreciation for Binyamina’s wine growers and farmers, who work day and night to provide Binyamina Wineries with the highest quality wine grapes. The Hebrew word “Yogev” means “tiller of the soil”, the laborer that works the land and causes it to flourish.”
Well, it was the best red wine we have ever had, and I am going to see if I can find it again when we are out of red, for our Sabbaths and feast days.
Another red wine we used to enjoy back in Colorado for Sabbath and feast days, is Baron Herzog Black Muscat. We loved it, not only because it was delicious, but we liked that we were Herzogs, drinking Baron Herzog, LOL. I haven’t found it out here, but I just discovered you can order it from their website – until they are out, I assume.
04/29/10 Update: I found Baron Herzog wine out here! I discovered a Publix supermarket surrounded on three sides by country clubs, and they carry almost everything I have been looking for since we moved here – including Baron Herzog wine in their large kosher section of the grocery store! Still looking for the Binyamina Winery label …
