Show Notes

After the 9 Days and a pretty brutal week for Israel, we thought it might be nice to sit back with a nice glass of wine and talk about something a little lighter. With agriculture, and the grape harvest starting on or around Tu B'Av (15th Av), what better topic for an episode than Israel's growing wine industry!

Alex spent an afternoon strolling through the vineyards in the hills just outside Jerusalem with one of Israel's up-and-coming vintners, Sam Baum. Sam works at one of Israel's leading wine producers and has spent his adult life learning everything there is to know about growing and tending to the grapes in order to produce some truly fantastic wines. 

Sam and his wife Rivky also launched their own label this year, Family Baum Winery with a view to producing Israel's best red wine.

The cultivation of grapes and the production of wine has always played an important role in the Holy Land and Sam is just the latest in a long line of world-class kosher vintners.

Sam's passion for wine production, the land, the people, and the God of Israel come through and inspire everything he does.
