Editorial Reviews

Review

Rogov's Guide is indispensable for fans of Israel's fast-growing industry. --The New York Times

Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines is not only the most complete and up-to-date coverage of Israeli wines, with excellent notes on more than 1,000 wines, but it is very tastefully designed, and of extraordinarily high quality. --Tom Stevenson, Editor of Sotheby's & Christie's Wine Encyclopedias

This quality wine book reflects the enormous strides recently made in the Israeli wine industry; it fills an important void in spreading the message about the quality and variety of Israel's wineries. Rogov is by far Israel's most credible wine journalist. --Decanter Magazine

Format: Hardcover
A brilliant and well thought out analysis of the Israeli Wine Industry that facilitates the understanding as well as the appreciation of Israeli wines. Regardless of your taste in wines, Rogov seems to explain the regional differences and production methods with wines with no bias to any style. His honesty, truth and depth of knowledge allow anyone from the basic to the connoisseur appreciate the uniqueness Israeli wine. A yearly release that is thoroughly worthwhile.

Format: Hardcover
Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines is the definitive annual guide to this fast growing region of world class wines. Even more, Rogov's Guide sets a new standard: as Tom Stevenson, Editor of Sotheby's & Christie's Wine Encyclopedias wrote "not only the most complete and up-to-date coverage of Israeli wines, but it is very tastefully designed, and of extraordinarily high quality."

Now in its fifth year, the 2009 edition contains a detailed map of Israel's wine regions; coverage of over 175 wineries; a tasting chart for your own ratings; contact details of all wineries; and almost 1,800 wines tasted, rated and fully described. The guide indicates which of Israel's wines are kosher, provides information on what makes a wine kosher and discusses whether there is a contradiction between good wine and kosher wine. Also in the book, a guide to tasting wines and a chapter on tourism at the wineries.

In a convenient pocket sized format, Rogov's Guide To Israeli Wines 2009 rates in detail all available wines from Israel through the 2007 vintage. This is the definitive guide to the entire Israeli wine scene!

Daniel Rogov, may he rest in peace, was the leading Israeli wine critic. His reviews were world renowned. This is an earlier edition of the 2012 authoritativeness guide on Israeli wines written for both the connoisseur and novice. Rogov goes into a wonderful explanation and elucidation of the Israeli wine industry. His ratings are generally quite on-target, in my opinion, if a bit over-stated. Rogov gives high ratings to several inexpensive wines (under $20 a bottle)--one can enjoy without lavish spending. In 2011 he wrote a review of kosher wines from around the world as a companion to his Israeli wine review volume.

Format: Hardcover
I have Rogov's books since 2006 edition. Liked the pocket size so I could always carry them in a bag or in a car which is convenient when one visits wineries. Liked narrating style and very nice way to rate wines. Somewhat biased towards Golan Heights winery.However,this is quite acceptable for GHW being one of the oldest and possibly most professional producer in Israel. Overall,highly recommend both the book and author (he has an online forum on WineLovers).
