Title: Rogov’s Guide to Israeli Wines

Title: Rogov’s Guide to Israeli Wines
Author: Daniel Rogov
Publisher: Toby Press, New Milford, CT

 

 

Did you know that you can experience an aspect of Israel for only $12 or so – via a bottle of one of their award-winning vintage varieties of wines?

No more of that cloying extra-sweet Malaga (unless you happen to really like Malaga) – Israel’s wineries have made it to First Place on the wine connoisseurs choice lists. Their wines are highly regarded even by wine enthusiasts who applaud these wines after blind tests against varietals from established French, Italian, German and American wineries.

Daniel Rogov writes a weekly wine column for Haaretz, the Israeli newspaper, and is a regular contributor to prestigious international wine literature. There are over one hundred twenty vintners in Israel today. As many as a thousand individual varieties of wines are produced annually, which are considered one of the major export products of Israel industry to Europe and North America.

This beautifully produced pocket-sized hardcover volume contains 250 pages with concise but very detailed descriptions that will be very useful to both the first-time user as well as to the aficionado. Rogov and his publisher, Toby Press, intend to re-publish this list annually with up-to-the-minute details on every Israeli winery and the wines that they produce.

The pages are replete with color photos of many of the labels found on wine bottles to assist easy identification, and reviews of the more than a thousand current selections, featuring individual scores and vintage reports. One chapter explains what constitutes a kosher wine, another provides a history of wine making in Israel, and there is an included glossary of wine terminology.

At less than $15, Rogov’s Guide should easily become a standard in the collection of everyone who enjoys consuming good wines and wants to start enjoying some of the world’s best fruits of the vine from Eretz Yisrael.
