Marsha Winery: Introducing High-Quality Wines in a Developing Wine Region

Marsha Winery: Introducing High-Quality Wines in a Developing Wine Region

In a new and developing wine region, Marsha Winery is a kosher family winery producing high quality wines. With its mission to transmit wine culture and introduce new flavors and aromas to Israeli wine, Marsha Winery aims to be the center for the transmission of wine culture. Near Nahal Govrin, the vineyard, winery, and visitor center are located in "Givaot Yehuda-Tel Marsha." The coastal plain, the Judean Mountains, and the Lachish region form this region of land. There are limestone hills and low limestones in the area that rise from 30 to 60 meters above sea level, and clay soils mixed with chalk can be found along the rivers and in the plains between them. In front of us is the creation of a new, unique terroir that produces high-quality, regional wines. Since the winery is an ESTATE WINERY, and the winery strives to "grow the wine on the vine", the wines are made exclusively from grapes grown in the vineyard owned by the winery. This way we can guarantee the uniqueness of the flavors and the characteristic aromas obtained from the grapes.. "Tel-Marsha" (the site of the caves of Beit Gobrin), the ancient biblical city mentioned in the Bible, as well as Josephus Flavius as a dominant and busy district city, provides the source of Nahal Gobrin, which passes near the winery. Between the mild clay and the kurkar hills typical of the region, the stream meanders.. The combination of low yields and pruning during all stages of growth, along with the hot summer climate and humid conditions typical of the area, produce intense flavors and aromas in the grapes and wine. The vineyard and the winery the wines "Nahal Gubrin" is a blend of Pinotage and Syrah grapes. The Pinotage variety has proven to be a promising success in the region. The resulting wine is a complex wine with character, rich in aromas of red fruits, truffles, and herbs. "Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are crossed in order to create Tel Marsha. Syrah grapes fermented in open tanks contribute an additional layer of complexity and meaty aromas. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes fermented in tanks were macerated with the skins for another week. This wine has soft tannins and a solid body, as well as a long aftertaste. The winery visitor center We are open on Fridays, as well as by appointment on other days of the week. Visitors to the visitor center can take a tour of the adjacent vineyards, learn about the winery's production process, and taste our special wines. We will be happy to host you in the visitor center or in the beautiful courtyard overlooking the vineyard, with great air, a glass of fine wine, and quality cheeses. Also, the place is ideal for holding private and prestigious events in a special atmosphere in front of a view of vineyards. A bit of history… The winery is located in a land formerly known as "Fields of Palestine". It was formerly a buffer zone between Judea and Palestine, where Jews and Philistines lived in the city of Erububia alternately during the ancient period. According to the researchers, Tel Tzfit is the biblical city of Gath, where King David fled, behaving like a madman before Acish the king of Gath.. These days, archaeological excavations in the area of Moshav Zarhia where the winery operates (about 200 meters from the winery's gates) have revealed the remains of an ancient settlement which, according to the findings, dates back to the Byzantine period in the 7th century AD. Moshav Zarhia has an impressive wine cellar measuring approximately 15x15 meters with a mosaic floor and a system for dripping and pooling liquids.. According to ancient maps in the hands of researchers, this is "Tel Romilta", a Jewish or Byzantine settlement that has not yet been determined.    tel:+972525695927

Experience Mediterranean Flavors at Mena - A Bistro Restaurant on Yarakon Street

Experience Mediterranean Flavors at Mena - A Bistro Restaurant on Yarakon Street

I recently visited Mena, a Mediterranean bistro restaurant located on Yarakon Street, and I must say, I was impressed. The restaurant is under the direction of Chef Yanon Elel, who has worked in some of the most prestigious kitchens around the world. The restaurant is beautifully situated on a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, offering a stunning view. Mena's emphasis on Mediterranean food is evident in every dish they serve, and the freshness of the ingredients is apparent. The menu is carefully curated, with classic influences and European flair that doesn't compromise on the small details. I had the pleasure of trying several dishes, and each one was better than the last. The winter menu features a variety of dishes, from sourdough bread with butter, dua, olive oil, and balsamic from Modena, to sweet potato roulade with confit garlic, feta, hazelnuts, and olive oil. The standout dish for me was the chopped liver with pepper jam, crispy shallots, sour leaves, and African bread. It was a unique twist on a classic dish, and the flavors were perfectly balanced. Mena's menu options are a delightful blend of Mediterranean cuisine with European influences, offering a diverse range of dishes to suit all tastes. From classic favorites like Caesar salad with parmesan and crispy potato, to more adventurous options like fish carpaccio with pistachio vinaigrette and chili, the restaurant caters to a variety of palates. Vegetarians and vegans will also find plenty of options, including the red root vegetable pasta with silan, za'atar, and feta, and the greens in the oven with caesar aioli, parmesan, crispy potato, and soft egg. The menu is carefully curated to highlight the freshest ingredients, and the staff is knowledgeable about each dish, making recommendations and accommodating any dietary restrictions. Overall, the menu options at Mena are a delicious journey through the flavors of the Mediterranean. The service at Mena was impeccable, and the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. They were able to match the needs of our group in terms of food, style, design, and service. The published menus can be slightly changed if necessary, which is a nice touch. Overall, I highly recommend Mena for anyone looking for a Mediterranean dining experience in a beautiful setting. The prices are reasonable, considering the quality of the food and the level of service. If you're looking for a place to host a small event, Mena is the perfect choice.
