In 1848, with the rejuvenation of the Jewish settlement in Jerusalem, Yitzhak Galina-Shor opened the first winery in Israel, in a basement adjunct to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. During the eight generations since its foundation, 1848 Winery continued to grow and gain recognition for its quality wines, re-positioned into several locations, but maintained a tradition of wine production as a way of life.The wine was aged in European oak barrels for 10 months. A purple color with bright burgundy tones. An aroma of ripe red fruit, blackberries, mint, vanilla and tobacco in the background due to the contact with the wooden barrel. The wine is full-bodied and complex, and gives a very balance, long and pleasant finish. Stew meat, heavy casseroles or blue cheese.
