Israeli Wineries Suggest Americans Toast New Year’s Eve with Holy Land’s Sparkling Wines


2018 will celebrate Israel’s 70th anniversary

NEW YORK, Dec. 19 – Israel’s leading wineries launched a national campaign today with a video recommending Americans toast New Year’s Eve and the Jewish state’s 70th anniversary with sparkling wines from the Holy Land.

Israel’s leading Golan Heights and Galil Mountain wineries produced the video, which highlights the Jewish state’s accomplishments and its blossoming viticulture. Released by the wineries’ U.S. importer, the New York-based Yarden Inc., the video is available on YouTube and social media and can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/jEUs2ZL67Gs.

Israel is not only known as the high-tech Startup Nation, but boasts over 300 vineyards that are producing wines that are increasingly gaining international acclaim.

“The United States of America is Israel’s best friend. What better way for Americans to pay tribute to Israel’s rich and complex history over seven decades this New Year’s Eve than by raising a glass of Israeli sparkling wine and toasting her incredible accomplishments?” said Dorit Ben Simon, executive manager of Yarden Inc.

The wineries produce Israel’s most acclaimed sparkling wines. They include the complex and elegant Yarden Blanc de Blancs, from chardonnay grapes and featuring aromatic lemon zest characters rounded out with notes of fresh flowers and green apples, with hints of flint and fresh baguette; the Yarden Rose, from chardonnay and pinot noir grapes, featuring aromatic strawberry, red apple, lemon, and floral characters layered with hints of crusty baguette; and the Gilgal Brut, of chardonnay and pinot noir grapes, with bright lemon and lime citrus characters, alongside hints of apricot, green apple and fresh flowers, rounded out by subtle notes of strawberry and toast.
