Binyamina Things to Do

    Also known as Shuni (Arabic for granary), Park Jabotinsky is to be found a few minutes drive out of Binyamina towards Zichron Yaakov (or about a 30 minute walk).

    It's essentially the most southerly spur of Mount Carmel and incorporates rocky forest walks, fabulous views, the sculpture garden and the Shuni Archaeological Museum Fortress.

    Mentioned in the Talmud, Shumi was purchased at the end of the 19th century by a wealthy Arab landowner, Salim Houri, who built various buildings on the site, including the (still) prominent 'shuni'. But he sold the land to Baron Rothschild who opened an agricultural school. It was later used by the right-wing Irgun as their HQ in their fight against the British Mandate - one of the leaders being Ze'ev Jabotinsky.

    Roman remains were discovered at a later date, including a bathhouse and amphitheatre. The theatre has been restored and used for concerts and the original mosaic floors of Roman villas etc currently 'house' numerous sculptures.

    With its picnic areas, museum (advance arrangements required) and the Roman remains, the theatre area is the main focus of the park and it is here the main entrance has been created. But its a very spread out park, with other archaeological remains spread out across the landscape (with more likely yet to be unearthed) and offering fabulous views.

    Several hours (and a car) would certainly help with maximising time in the park (neither of which I had!).

    Ksantini pub, called after Mr.Ksantini, an immigrant who came to Binyamina in the 50ies when it was a tiny new settelment. Today, the palce is run by his grandsun and its one of the most successful in the area.
    Ksnatini features great bar with a large verity of drinks. In some nitghts the quite bar transforms itself into dance bar and to karaoke bar that fit together with the big open space in the pub.

    Dress Code: Someting trendy...

Binyamina Off The Beaten Path

    Binyamina is one of our larger vineyards in Israel and they have an excellent taste along with a wide range of wines to offer. On their web page you can pick and choose to find a selection that suits your tastes. I have enjoyed the Kramim, Binyamina, Yogev and Special Series labels.
    Just in the Binyamina line we have tried the Emerald Riesling, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo.
    The pictures show the entrance to the tasting room, Natasha, Zohara and Dimitry, and then two fruits and flowers that I liked but am not familiar with, the second fruit looks like one that is offered in the supermarket sometimes, but have never tried.
    Enjoy.

    Not on one of the main roads, take the time to visit the Tishbi Vineyard, their tasting room and new dining/picnic area...

    You can find them on route 652 between Zichron Yaakov and Binyamina.

    They have an excellent selection of their wines from the "Baron" and "Vineyards" to the more expensive "Estate" and "Tishbi Special Reserve"... We like
    Baron: Cabernet-Petite Sirah
    Vineyard: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Muscat.
