The Vitkin Winery is a family boutique winery which was started in 2001 and rapidly became a highly esteemed winery. The vineyards are located in the Judean Hills, the Carmel and the Galilee. In August the grapes are harvested and brought to the winery.
I was invited to a wine tasting tour on a Friday morning. We had an interesting time with the owners, Doron and Sharona, we heard the winery's story, toured the premises (this is a very small boutique winery, basically a farmyard turned into a winery), and then moved into the small old farmhouse (which used to be the home of Doron's grandmother) for wine tasting.
Ten different wines were served to us by our friendly hosts, we learned about Cabernet Franc, Carignan, Pinot Noir, Petit Sira, and also familiarized ourselves with the special blends called "Israeli Journey" (red, white and rose). This was a celebration of tastes and aromas.
