1848 Winery was founded by Yossi Shor in 2006 with the objective of making small quantities of handcrafted wines of the highest possible quality. He began his quest by planting new vineyards from 2000/1 in the finest wine regions in Israel. He then employed a French born, Bordeaux trained winemaker and sought the assistance of leading consultants covering every aspect of the winemaking process.
