Psagot Winery

#273 – June 27, 2014 Despite my best intentions and with over 75 kosher wineries in Israel alone, a significant amount of time may go by before I provide an updated newsletter on many well-deserving wineries (which is one of the reasons for my more frequent “quickies”).  Psagot is one of those wineries whose wines […]
