The Carmel Winery Visitor Center is an experiential center that combines tours, workshops, and wine tastings at the historic winery, which has opened its doors and presents the fascinating story from the beginning of the wine industry in Israel, to today’s new world of wine. The connection between old and new is the secret of Carmel’s magic.

 

We invite you to take a look at the sequence of professional winemaking in Israel, from its beginnings in the modern era, to the quality revolution of the well-known and beloved series of wines enjoyed in every Israeli home.   

 

The professional team of the Wine & Culture Center consists of wine guides with extensive experience in their field, who personally adapt the hospitality experience at the winery, while customising each visit to the character of each and every group.
