Barak from Israel Wine Tour, took our company for a wonderful wine tasting tour around Binyamina / Zichron Ya'akov area (about 30 minutes drive from tel aviv).
Barak was great. What a mensch. Perfect english, perfect guide. He picked us up, and on the way, went over the stories and history of wine making in Zichron. The scenery was beautiful!
We visited Somek (fantastic people, lovely wine), continued to a special beer brewery, called Pavo, where we were sat in a nice wooden porch overlooking the beautiful scenery).
Somewhat lightheaded, we took lunch in the old part of Zichron, rested, and then went to the amazing Amphora, with their pretty gardens and great wines!
Overall it was a truly wonderful day. I highly recommend it to anyone, tourist or local. After getting a taste of the Zichron Yaakov tour, I plan on experiencing the Judean hills wine tour soon.
