Jerusalem Wine Festival?

by Moshe F » Wed Aug 28, 2013 10:21 am

Anyone have a write up on the Jerusalem Wine Festival and their tasting notes? New vintages, old vintages, interesting wines, disinteresting wines, new wines, old wines, new vines, old vines etc. Looking to get a feel for what to expect and to try over the upcoming holiday season. Thanks!

Moshe, hi,

As every year I've attended the festival and I have so many tasting notes and remarks that it will take some time until I break down and edit all of those. However, I'll try to post a few TN's here over the next couple of days.

Best,

GG

Thanks Gabriel. Much appreciated. I did see you post some notes in your other thread and you noted that it would take some time to get more out. With this thread I was hoping for others to chime in on their experience and tastings from the festival as well.
