On the Wine & Plenty Festival Trail
Guided Walks in Nature, Agriculture and the Human Landscape
A wine tour in rickshaws, a bike ride along Nahal Taninim, a getting-to-know you expedition to Jisr al-Zarka, and an encounter with green farming ‒ all these will give special added value to the Wine & Plenty Festival, enriching your total experience.
So, if you're planning to come to the festival at Ramat Hanadiv, take advantage of the opportunity for some unexpected 'tastings' ‒ of nature, agriculture, and the unforgettable individuals who live and work in the area.
The Partnership for Regional Sustainability, founded by Ramat Hanadiv, offers Wine & Plenty guests a selection of short introductory tours in the environs of Hanadiv Valley, all in the spirit of sustainability. They are hosted as part of the Partnership's cooperative activities to encourage regional tourism and promote local agriculture.
The bike ride will depart from Binyamina and go along Nahal Tananim. An easy ride, on flat terrain, it passes through vineyards and orchards. This outing will include a visit to the Etz Hasadeh Farm in the picturesque village of Givat Ada, a meeting with the Tepperberg family, who were among the pioneers of Israel's olive oil industry, and a visit to the Reuven Winery.
A one-of-a-kind wine tour to Emek Alona, with self-driven tuk-tuks (mechanized rickshaws) and led by a local guide, into the vineyards and enchanted landscapes of the valley, as well as a visit to the boutique Argov Winery, where there will be a discussion on wine to delight oenophiles and amateurs alike -- and tastings for everyone's pleasure!
Guided tour of Jisr al-Zarka, where residents will provide an intimate look at the culture and realities of their special village as visitors tread its footpaths and lanes. After passing the mosque and the fishermen's village, there will be a stop in the Juhas Guesthouse, which attracts tourists from around the world coming to check out its social justice component and how it contributes to local economic development. The last course will be a delectable traditional meal in the home of a Jisr family.
A experiential visit to Bustan Tom and an encounter with sustainable, organic framing. This tour meanders through the grape vines, the organic vegetable garden, and the fruit orchards of Bustan Tom, with explanations of environmentally-conscious green agriculture. Next will be a visit to the exquisitely atmospheric Amphorae Winery, located in an expansive stone building at the very heart of the Bustan. Threading its way among barrels of wine, the tour winds up at the winery's attractive Visitors' Centre for tastings of Amphorae's range of fine wines.
Please note: All tours require advance registration and payment of a fee.
