About Us: How we started our company, Israeli Good Wine

Five friends who ended up in Israel…

The longing for connection is strong for each of us—belonging to family and celebrating around the table.

We thought we were in Israel for a vacation, but really, each of us responded to an invitation for an adventure much bigger than we could have imagined. Because of our passion for wine, the five of us drove through the hills of Samaria in search of the best vineyards in Israel. We tasted wines that exceeded every expectation and fell in love with the stories of the brave pioneers who founded these wineries, around their dinner tables and in their tasting rooms.

It’s safe to say the five of us are adventurers at heart… Collectively and individually, we love to travel the world and hop on planes, trains, or automobiles as often as possible. We started this business after an adventure in Israel. Upon returning home, we realized we couldn’t keep these exceptional wines to ourselves so we shared them with family and friends over dinners. Soon, the wine had run out and we knew we needed to do something to bring the wine from the Land of Promise to more than just our community. That is where the idea for Israeli Good Wine was born. 

Come and savor the authentic land of Israel through its unique and memorable wines. Just as we gathered around the table as a family, so we invite you to taste and see that the land is good.

Let my table be an altar for all people. Strangers. Friends. Family.
