Guess what?

ESHKOL HAZAHAV

The winners of this year’s Eshkol Hazahav (Golden Cluster), were announced at The Peres Center For Peace in Jaffa...Two hundred and fifty nine wines were sent in from fifty-six wineries, to be tasted blind by panels of experts. These included winemakers, sommeliers, wine critics and wine connoisseurs.

The surprise of the evening was Shiloh Winery...Shiloh won an outstanding four Gold Medal Trophies, all of them red wines...

The Gold Medal Trophies, (first place), were awarded to the following wines:

Legend 2, Shiloh 2011

CABERNET SAUVIGNON (More than NIS 100)
Sod Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiloh 2012

MERLOT (More than NIS 100)

Oh, and 

MERLOT (Less than NIS 100)

But the venue of the Peres Center was, well, satisfying.
