Ever wondered what the contemporary wine scene in Israel is like? I’m very excited to welcome back Adam Montefiore, who previously appeared on the show discussing Modern Israeli Wine History, Part 1: Early History and Modern Israeli Wine History, Part 2: 1970s-Present. As part of the Toast to Israel at 75 mini-series, we get together over Israeli wine at the original location of דרך היין in Tel Aviv discussing the contemporary wine scene in Israel.
