Wine has a powerful significance in the Jewish tradition. In many Jewish homes around the world, each Friday night a blessing is said over wine as the Sabbath is ushered in. A powerful symbol of goodness in this land of ours, the land of milk and honey, is two men carrying a cluster of grapes back to the children of Israel in the desert. Even the Israeli Ministry of Tourism adopted this logo many years ago.
Carmel Mizrachi, a veteran winery in Israel, has used this same story for their logo since 1882. For four decades, this winery led the Israeli win industry with no real competition. Not until the 1980’s, when the Golan Heights wineries began to produce quality wine, was Carmel Mizrachi challenged.
