The Yatir winery was recently put on the vinous map when Robert Parker, probably the most famous wine writer in the world, held his first ever generic tasting of Israeli wines and awarded 93 points for its Yatir Forest 2003. Four Israeli wineries went over the crucial 90 point mark and this wine was regarded as one of the best value wines.

Adam Montefiore who wrote a feature on eastern Mediterranean wines for Drinks International last year said: "This tasting represents the best possible third party recommendation. Israel is producing quality eastern Mediterranean wines, which will surprise those who think the wines are only suitable for the ethnic market."
