Wine & Plenty, a colourful regional festival, brings Israel's wine industry back to where it all began. The festival took place among the luxurious scents and gardens of Ramat Hanadiv.
The unique ambiance of Wine & Plenty, was hosted by Ramat Hanadiv for the third time, has also marked with symbolic significance: At the heart of the exquisite Memorial Gardens stands the grave of the visionary philanthropist Baron Edmond de Rothschild, who asked to be buried at this site.
The Baron's contributions were pivotal to the country's wine industry. He imported traditional varieties of grapes to be grown in newly-built villages, established the first modern winery in the land, and fostered the creation of many others, which gained recognition long ago, here and beyond the seas.
Hence the regional festival, Wine & Plenty, is not just another winefest. Its winning combination of place and history, marvelous views, local entrepreneurs and guests -- and of course the outstanding wine and artisanal products -- make for the most 'elsewhere' festival in Israel. And this is one of the few sites in the country where the fresh mountain air and gentle sea breezes actually entice guests to enjoy a summer event outdoors.
