Wine from Palestine! From the hills of Bethlehem.

Palestine Online Store does not sell wine; this is a referral page to the online retailer, Some Good Wine. The U.S. distributor for these wines is Palestinian-owned Terra Sancta Trading.

Description

The Cremisan Wine Estate was founded in 1885 and has been managed by the Salesians since 1891, when the Congregation of Don Bosco started its work in Palestine. The proceeds of sales of this wine support the educational and charitable work of the Salesians of the Holy Land.

The grapes are grown mostly in the area around Bethlehem and Hebron in Palestinian territories, in vineyards at 2600 ft altitude. The cooler micro-climate ensures longer hang-times, more controlled ripening and an overall better structure of acids/sugars in the grapes.

Baladi – Dry Red Wine
Stewed raspberry, with plum, cranberry and hints of forest floor on the nose. Concentrated and complex, yet medium bodied and smooth. Plum continues on the palate, revealing blackberry, stewed strawberry, and red apple skin. Finishes long, dry and elegant.

Dabouki – Dry White Wine
Apricot, hints of tropical fruit and wet stone lead the way on the subtle and delicate nose. Ripe green apple, apricot, pear, and  green herbs on the palate, fading into lime skin and anise. Medium in body, finishing round and clean.  Subtler on the nose, yet heavier and more viscous on the palate than the Cremisan Hamdani.
