On the eve of the Shavuot holiday, the Society for the Promotion of Tourism in Herzliya, in conjunction with the Grape Man, is hosting the White Summer White Wine Festival at the Herzliya Marina. The largest white wine festival in Israel will take place on the plaza of the marina on Wednesday and Thursday, May 24-25, 2017.
The highlights of the festival include tastings of hundreds of white, blush and sparkling wines; workshops; live music; and the Israel debuts of dozens of new domestic and imported white wines, presented by the nation’s leading wineries and importers.
Each visitor will receive a wine glass to be used for unlimited tastings of the myriad wines on offer. In addition to the tastings, there will be “speed taste” workshops with Grape Man’s wine experts, a store selling the wines on display, and a food court, as well as other culinary attractions.
The wineries presenting their vintages include Segal, Barkan, Kishur, Domaine du Castel, Harei Galil, Carmel, Castel, 1848, Kerem Yerushalayim, Emek Ha’elah, Gush Etzion, Franconia, Midbar, Hakerem, Le Citadel, and more.
“We have been witnessing growth in the consumption of white wine by customers and wine aficionados for years now,” says Grape Man CEO Haim Gan. “Many local wineries have risen to the challenge and are producing wonderful and surprising white wines, so supply is increasing to meet the demand. New varieties of grape are being planted in Israel, and amazing wines are being imported from the world over. This festival is a great opportunity for the public to taste hundreds of domestic and imported wines.”
The festival, sponsored and organized by Society for the Promotion of Tourism in Herzliya and the Grape Man Center, together with Wine and Gourmet Magazine, will take place on the evenings of Wednesday and Thursday, May 24-25, 2017, between 18.00 and 23.00, at the Herzliya Marina, Hatzedef St. 1. Admission is NIS 69, NIS 59 with advance registration (NIS 49 for Herzliya residents with ID).
