A wine event will take place on February 8 at the Menachem Begin Center in Jerusalem.

A second event as part of the Essence of Things festival will take place on February 8 at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center (State Heritage Center of the Sixth Prime Minister of Israel, Nobel Peace Prize winner) overlooking Mount Zion and the Old City. The first part was dedicated to oil. The current event is called “The Secret of Wine”, visitors can expect lectures, workshops, meetings with interesting people, tastings, prizes.

Einat Klein will be one of the lecturers of “The Secret of Wine”: historian, guide to Africa and the Middle East, photographer, organizer of the Vino & Co project and winemaker. Einat is a judge of the Wine Travel Awards – an international award of a new format in the field of wine tourism, as well as a nominee for this award in the Wine Guide nomination – Guide of the Year.

The topic of Einat Klein’s lecture is “Innocent History: How to Understand Wine”. The expert will tell you how bad wine differs from good wine, how to properly decompose wine into aromas and flavors, analyze them and enjoy the process, etc.

We would like recalled that on July 31, 2021, a presentation-tasting of `3 Cats` – wines by Einat Klein – took place at the Museum of the Jewish People (ANU), located on the campus of Tel Aviv University. Exclusively, 1000 bottles have been released, each numbered and is a collector’s item. 3 Cats is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, 2018 harvest, aged for 12 months in a French oak barrel. The design of the label belongs to the “brush” of Einat’s husband – Andriy Makarevych, because, as you know, Andriy is not only a composer, lyricist and performer, but also a talented artist.

At the event “Secret of Wine”, `3 Cats` wine can not only be tasted, but also purchased.

Lecturers at The Secret of Wine will also be Benny Ionin, lecture “My Cup is Full” (Wine Bowl in Ancient Oriental Art and Tanakh); Misha Birman, lecture “Transformation of Wine”; Tal Wolf, lecture “Wine Not Through Rose Glasses” (fitting “drunk glasses”, interactive master class); Denis Zlatopolsky, the topic of the lecture “Triumph of Dionysus”; Vlad Slutskin, the topic of the lecture “Grapes as an ancient battle”.
