Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book 2021 has been launched. This annual guide has been released every year since 1977. It remains after all these years the largest selling wine book. Hugh Johnson is the world’s most prolific wine writer.
Israel merits two pages and is listed as part of the Eastern Mediterranean. Forty two Israeli wineries are listed. The leading ratings go to Domaine du Castel, Tzora Vineyards, followed by Flam Winery, Margalit Winery and Sphera, and then Yarden.
The Israeli section is written by Hugh Johnson, with expert assistance from Adam Montefiore, wine writer of the Jerusalem Post, and Gal Zohar, of IWSI, the Israel Wine & Spirits School.
