More Wine, Please?

Disclaimer: These posts will be in, well, no particular order. Please forgive me?

On December 23, in the midst of an irritating rain storm, we stopped by the Rimon pomegranate winery in the heart of the Galilee Mountains. This place is the hippest, most random little winery I've ever seen -- the look is very clean, crisp art deco with the most beautiful light fixtures I have ever seen. Someday -- I repeat, someday -- I will find these light fixtures and most definitely put them in my house. It's thanks to this winery that I am now obsessed with pomegranates. The unique thing about these wines is that they aren't just flavored with pomegranate. Oh no, they're made from 100 percent pomegranates!

We weren't there very long, but we were there long enough to try their wines, of which I took to the dessert and port (pictured there). For some reason, the Port was a lot sweeter than the dessert, so I picked up a bottle for the express purpose of my first kiddush home with Tuvia. You see, the first chance we'd had to shop -- out on Ben Yehuda in Jerusalem -- I picked up (after some haggling) the most beautiful kiddush cup, so I needed some Israeli wine to go with it. So I purchased the wine, some delicious chocolate, and a jar of Israeli-made honey.

Here are some photos for your viewing pleasure. I'll let you know how the wine goes over with Tuvia on Shabbos.



Cheers!

Great photos, Chavi! I love the one with the glasses...in a row. The perspective is fantastic!

It sounds like it was a wonderful winery experience.

I love the Yakvei Golan winery when I went there . . . there's a great brewery nearby as well!

Wonderful pictures, Chavi! The light fittings are beautiful.

Do we get to see your kiddush cup at some point?

@Tuvia Thanks, hon :)

@Lorri It really was.

@Mottel The only beer I managed to down while there (as it was expensive and I don't drink much) was Goldstar, which seems to be THE beer.

@LE7 THANKS!

@Rachel I just posted a new post. I'd completely forgotten! Oops!
