Only Available in the US


I have long maintained a page on this site dedicated to those special wines that were only available in Israel and I felt were worth bringing back  to the US, either for long-term cellaring purposes or simply to enjoy.  As the geographic scope of readership has continued to expand, a significant number of readers are located in Israel where many of the world’s greatest wines aren’t available (and many that are technically available, are only available at stratospheric pricing retail pricing making it more economical to fly to the US to buy them than to purchase them in a local Israel shop).

As a result, I have set forth an initial list of wines that are available in the US and worth your time, consideration and hard-earned shekels.   I note that a number of these are boutique wineries that are only available directly from the producer and may be more difficult to track down (i.e. Hajdu and Four Gates).  I have listed all of the wineries that are generally available in the US and not in Israel and underneath each such winery, a few of their wines I feel are particularly worth seeking out.  Some of these wineries produce an enormous number of wines (i.e. Hagafen and Herzog) making it unrealistic to note every one of their offerings I recommend.  For additional suggestions follow the individual links or use the search button above.

Enjoy, Happy Hunting and Safe Traveling!
