Carmel Winery – Kosher Wines from Israel

By David Perelman

About Carmel Winery

One of Israel's earliest and pioneering producers, Carmel Winery was founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, a philanthropic founder of the country's wine industry. Carmel operates Israel's largest wineries in Rishon Le Zion and Zichron Ya'acov. Each facility benefits from an extensive network of deep underground cellars built by Rothschild in the 19th century.




Carmel Winery has 3,472 acres of vineyards covering the land of Israel from the Upper Galilee to the Negev. Carmel's winemakers have at their disposal a vast array of vineyards with different terroirs throughout the country. Carmel has a particularly strong vineyard presence in the cooler climate of the Upper Galilee, from where many of the leading wines are sourced.

With such a rich history rooted in Israel, it’s no wonder that Carmel wines continue to be favorites in the kosher wine industry. From Carmel Limited Edition, the flagship of the winery, to Selected, Israel's top-selling brand, there’s no shortage of Carmel Winery products to delight your senses and tingle your taste buds. In fact, the winery produces over 15 million bottles a year, including wines of varying styles and price points. In addition to being kosher, wines from Carmel Winery are also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
