El Al Airlines launched their innovative new wine list last month. Each month they have an insert featuring small wineries.
The special wines featured for February 2014 are Petit Castel from Domaine du Castel and the Montefiore Syrah 2011 from Montefiore Wines.
The Castel wines is ‘Wine of the Month’ and the Montefiore wine is the ‘Discovery of the Month’.
Domaine du Castel is one of Israel’s finest wineries and Montefiore Winery is one of Israel’s most exciting new wineries. Both represent the Judean Hills wine region.
This is complemented by the monthly ‘Wine For Thought’ anecdote and learning point, which is both entertaining and instructive.
The wine list and Wine For Thought are compiled by the famous wine expert, Yair Haidu.
