Those from Israel might nominate Domaine du Castel or the Yatir Winery. Those with a bias toward French wines may choose one of the French wineries that make occasional kosher cuvées, such as Château Valandraud or Château Léoville Poyferre. Americans may choose Covenant.

We throw a party at the winery to celebrate the end of 2011 harvest: paella...website and new wines are introduced to the farmers ....
Finally we finished harvest! We organised a "little" paella for the farmers and  we introduced them the new website, and the new wines. The new front label of Costers del Gravet and Vall del Calas caused sensation, as they are real deeds of the farmers, 100 years old, from the vineyards of the wines. The first 10 days we must admit were not that easy at all, but at the end it looks better than ever.
