I am?pleased to announce that starting Monday September 6th (tomorrow!) 8 wines from Israel (including 4 that I import) are appearing as Featured Wines on the menu of Devon Seafood Grill in downtown Chicago just off of Michigan Avenue.

It’s been a real pleasure getting to know the staff and the General Manager Kevin there over the last few weeks.?I led a staff training on the Israeli terroir?and these wines late yesterday and I can assure you these guys and gals love the wines and are?pumped to share them with their customers.

Devon Seafood Grill serves thousands of customers each week – what an amazing platform for advancing love and awareness in premium Israeli wine!

?The fact that 4 of the 8 wines are from super-premium boutiques is more confirmation for what I’ve been saying for some time…the future of the Israeli wine world is in the small wineries.

Here are the 4 wines I import?going on the Devon Seafood Grill menu :

??

Flam Sauv Blanc / Chardonnay 2009

Flam Superiore Syrah 2006 (Wine Advocate: 90pts)?

Tulip Syrah Reserve 2007

Margalit Enigma 2006 (Wine Advocate: 90pts)

If you are in the Chicago area, I want you to please EAT AT DEVON and if you don’t live nearby but love wine from Israel as much as I do, please drop them a note thanking them for being?progressive enough to present these wines to their customers!

Thanks for your support!
