Tishbi Winery

Touring Israel

Tishbi Winery is a family-owned and operated winery in Binyamina. Commissioned by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, the winery was built in the 1880s by fourth-generation vintner, Jonathan Tishbi. Established as the first modern vineyard in Israel, the winery is the sixth largest in the country with an annual production of about a million bottles of wine.

In 2010, the winery expanded its offerings and began importing the premium chocolate brand, Valrhona, from France. A bakery with a Le Panyol oven from France was built at the same time to offer freshly baked French delicacies using  Cruzilles and Sosa brands, producers of gourmet professional baking products. The winery also has a kosher dairy gourmet restaurant that offers a variety of breakfast and lunch menus and a barbecue garage.

Located in Binyamina, the winery is set on the picturesque road that winds its way upward from Binyamina to Zichron Yaakov.

The Tishbi Winery Visitors Center is close to the winery and looks out over the winery’s vineyards.
