In 2013 we will become more active! We commit to finding more ways to include more of YOU as extensions of our team…Read more about Israeli Wines.
The IWD Team is always on the lookout for the best boutique wines from Israel so you can order them for home delivery in the US. If you live in Israel or anywhere in the world and want to send gifts to a US address just follow the BUY WINE directions or if you prefer to order over the phone CALL 866-469-8708. Acquire 12 BOTTLES of any combination of wines and we will INCLUDE GROUND SHIPPING RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR!
The IWD story started in 2006 by Richard Shaffer and was born out of his beliefs and passions to introduce Americans to great Israeli wines!
Three Americans who were introduced to GREAT ISRAELI WINES by Richard and share his beliefs and passions are Agnes Goldberger, Arie Hochberg and Mayer Jacobovits; they assumed leadership of IWD from Richard in August 2012 with the intent to continue what Richard started and expand it by offering more choices and developing more venues for Americans to experience these GREAT WINES.
Israel is in the news almost daily with news related to Middle East political troubles, giving an impression that a visit there might be dangerous.
In fact, Israel is a safe tourist destination and in the last 20 years also a compelling Wine Tours option. Where else can one experience a visit to a great historical site in the morning followed by a wine tasting at a boutique winery in the afternoon and finish the day at a World Class cultural event!
Israel is actually wine’s birthplace… and most people don't even realize it! After 2000 years Israel was re-born and its wine history is continuing! Our mission is not only to introduce you to great tasting Israeli Wines, but also to inform you about the history of how the original Israeli wine expertise from antiquity continued to modern times. See our History tab for a short overview with links to further information and details.
When people get excited about the Israeli wine scene, they’ll experience the real Israel. Part of our mission is helping to broaden people's understanding of what Israel is all about.
A small handful of large commercial Israeli wineries account for 80% of the wine exported to the US. There are also about 300 boutique wineries producing great Israeli wines in relatively small quantities. Our mission is to identify the best and bring high-quality wines you’ve never heard of to your attention. Wines with a STORY!
By controlling wine selection, marketing strategy, and distribution, IWD keeps the winery and winemaker central, allowing them to TELL THEIR STORY and allowing you to buy great wines as DIRECT as possible.
It is our goal:
1. To put "Israeli Boutique Wines" ON THE MAP - a trade mark known for quality.
2. They should take their rightful place on the wine lists of the best US restaurants.
3. Wine stores in the US should have a section under Israel; like Portugal or Spain.
