The abbay of Latroun stands 35 km from Tel-Aviv, a few hundred meters away from the highway Tel-Aviv - Jerusalem. Since the end of the XIXth century, the trappist monks produce there wine with an evident french influence.
I personnaly enjoy particularly their Gewurztraminer and their Rosé, the only dry blush wine I find in Israel, a must for the hot summer which costs a modest $ 4 for a bottle.
At a certain period of the year, the primeur is available and reminds well the "Beaujolais nouveau". The abbay also produces from time to time special "cuvées" dedicated to various themes, an opportunity for a label collector.
As a conclusion, when I'm travelling between Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem, I always have a good reason to stop at Latroun, without too much fear for my budget.
