The journey began with a scenic drive, and a quick stop at Mt. Bental, where we were mesmerized by the breathtaking views. The absolute highlight was our visit to Pelter Winery. Being wine enthusiasts, we were thrilled to explore an Israeli winery. We received a personalized tour of the vineyards and wine-making facilities, followed by an exquisite tasting session. The wines were exceptional, and we enjoyed exchanging notes and stories with the winemakers. The entire experience was delightful, enriching, and unforgettable, making it one of the best tours we've ever had."
