Varietal:

Barbera

- Thanks goodness for Italy's wine revolution! If not for the intrepid producers who reduced yields and focused their energy on improving quality in Italian wine production, we may have never known how delicious Barbera could be. Native to Italy, Piedmont's Monferrato is most often cited as its birthplace (though others argue that Oltrepò Pavese in Lombardy is its rightful home) with records of vineyard plantings dating back as far as 1246. Best known and most planted in its dark-skinned iteration (there is a white version of the grape called Barbera Bianca), the world's top Barberas come from Piedmont's Alba, Asti and Monferrato DOCs and styles can vary significantly depending on climate and soil. But you can always count on Barbera for its distinct ruby red color, vibrant acidity and mild tannins. Juicy red fruit and hints of smokiness are also common characteristics. Grown elsewhere in Italy, Barbera is used in varietal wines and as a blending grape to varying degrees of success. Outside of Italy it has also been planted extensively in North and South America, but most successfully in California, where it was planted by Italian immigrants and long, warm growing seasons give this late-harvest varietal the chance to develop complex flavors to compete with its racy acidity.
Country:

Israel

- Modern wine production in Israel was initiated by a huge investment by Baron Edmond de Rothschild (of Ch. Lafite) making wine production part of the agriculture resettlement programs in the late 19th century. Farmers were instructed by French experts and planted vine stock from the Rhône Valley and the Midi. The industry grew based on exports of kosher wine around the world. Most vineyards in Israel today are run by Kibbutzim (cooperative farms), which grow predominantly Carignan, Grenache, Alicante Bouschet, Semillon, Chenin Blanc and Muscat, and more recently Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Chardonnay.
