Yossi Shor

Yossi Shor comes from a long line of winemakers.
His family began making wine in the Old City of Jerusalem in 1848.
Since then, generation after generation, they continued making wine. For him it is not a profession, but a way of life.

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.
Yossi Shor is the eighth generation of the winemaking family, and the labels of his wines honor the generations that came before. By creating 1848 Winery, he has absorbed a wine culture and the family heritage whilst taking on board modern ideas and advanced state-of -the –art technology in both vineyards and winery. The winery produces 250,000 bottles a year. 1848 Winery is one of the most interesting, innovative and high quality small wineries in Israel today.
