Say “l’chaim” to Jerusalem’s annual celebration of wine at the Israel Museum.
Long before the vine reached Europe, the Middle East and Mediterranean were the wellspring of wine. Every August for over a decade, the Jerusalem Wine Festival has served as a celebration of Israel’s past and present standing as a wine region. Against the backdrop of an acclaimed sculpture garden, wine-lovers and sommeliers alike sip wine from over 60 wineries across the country, snack on treats from local eateries, and relax to the sound of (live) music. In a country where wine and festivities go hand in hand, you’ll surely be raising a glass by the end of the night.
