The Kosher Wine and Food Experience, proved for this Writer, to be a wine barrel full of information about Israeli vineyards and winemaking.
The event took place at the Petersen Automotive Museum, on the top floor, with a large open patio suitable for the many wine tasting booths and those offering exciting appetizers and tasties
Tabor Winery is located in Galilee but its vineyards spread over Mt. Tabor and the Golan Heights.
All the classic varietals are grown here with reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz and whites like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Roussanne and Barbera Rose
Also we noted a wine made as a blend of two Mediterranean varietals Marselan and Tanat..
This year the annual festival included both an afternoon event for trade and media and then an evening planned for fortunate ticket holders.
Wines from fifteen countries were also on display for tasting including Herzog Wne Cellars of Oxnard as well as Teal Lake wines from Australia, Alfasi from Chile and large selection of Chateau wines from France.
Some exciting foods were also offered providing tasty appetizers and specialties.  Award winning Tierra Sur Restaurant, located at the Herzog Winery in Oxnard was present.
Then there were the appetizers of Masaki Sushi.  Rita's served some wonderful iced desserts and we were back for seconds at The Chocolate Girl.   All this on the top floor of the Museum offering fine views of the city on a sparkling clear day with temperatures in the 70s.
