Wine Tour North of Israel from Tel Aviv

2. Wine Tour North of Israel from Tel Aviv

The high mountains of the Galilee are rich with volcanic soil and are ideal for winemaking because of their hot summers and snowy winters. Most of the largest wineries as well as many boutique wineries, have vineyards in the Galilee. Start your day with a pickup service at your Tel Aviv hotel or accommodation and take a pictorial route to the high Galilee Mountains in Northern Israel. During this highly rewarding tour, visit three different wineries as you taste wine and meet the winery owners and winemakers. Learn about their winemaking methods and the region's winemaking history. Throughout your visit to the wineries you will taste 3 to 4 different types of wine at each location: • The Netofa Winery offers elegant, old-world-type fine wines exemplified by smooth body and complex bouquets and flavors. • The Dalton Winery, one of the most famous and popular in Israel. This winery is a relatively large winery, with an annual production of around 1 million bottles. • The Adir Winery, a family-owned and operated mid-size winery which benefits from years of agricultural precision along with a true, hands-on knowledge of the land and wine production, from planting through growing, selection, harvesting, crushing and bottling the wine.

Galilee Culinary Tour: Full-Day Including Cooking Class

3. Galilee Culinary Tour: Full-Day Including Cooking Class

This full-day culinary tour mixes the old with the new. You’ll visit an organic winery that’s located next to a 300-year-old olive press. See hand-made chocolates produced just 5 miles away from a village where you’ll learn to prepare authentic Galilean Arab foods as they’ve been prepared for hundreds of years. The Galilee is often described as the Provence or Tuscany of Israel. The region is rural, green, and boasts top quality, locally grown agricultural produce. Olives, olive oil, fruits, and vegetables have been staples since biblical days. In the past few years numerous small boutique businesses have emerged, producing gourmet products ranging from cheeses, meats, breads and conserves, to beers, wines, and liqueurs. A typical trip to Israel doesn’t usually include an opportunity to meet Israelis in their homes in the Galilee and learn about their food and culture. On this unique excursion, you’ll learn how they've lived for hundreds of years and how they live today. Your guide will show you a slice of Israel that is authentic, interesting, and different to what most tourists see.

From Tel Aviv: Nazareth, Galilee & the Sea of Galilee Tour

4. From Tel Aviv: Nazareth, Galilee & the Sea of Galilee Tour

During this tour, you'll visit important holy places for the Christians in the Galilee Mountains where Christ spent most of his life on earth. Drive through the Galilee to visit Nazareth, a relatively small city which is the cradle of Christianity where the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ lived. One of the first stops is the Church of the Annunciation, the traditional site of Mary’s home. Afterwards, head to The St. Joseph Church, built on the location of the carpentry workshop of Joseph, father of Jesus. After leaving Nazareth, make a short stop in Kfar Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle by changing water into wine. Then, continue to the Church at Tabgha, the site of the miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fishes. Take a short walk along the Tabha-Capernaum promenade to 'Mensa Christi', the site of the events described in the Gospels.  It was there that Jesus cooked breakfast for the disciples, the miraculous catching of fish took place, and Peter’s reconciliation. Proceed from Tabgha to Capernaum, a remnant of the once-thriving Jewish community from the 2nd century and where Jesus began his ministry. View the ancient Synagogue and the home of St. Peter. Finally, drive through the city of Tiberias to Yardenit and experience the spirituality and pastoral beauty of the waters of the River Jordan, in which Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.
