Kyiv period and return to the ancestral land

Einat Klein was born in Kyiv. After finishing the secondary school, she entered Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv to study journalism. When she graduated from the university she moved to Israel. Having returned to the ancestral land, Einat got a degree in history at Bar-Ilan University of Israel. 

Seizing all the opportunities to travel, Einat has been to almost every part of the world. She is now the only (!) Russian speaking guide to Ethiopia. Besides, she can organise various extreme travels, such as trekking and rock climbing. 

From Vino&Co to CATS

Einat Klein is a creator and a committed mastermind of the Vino&Co project and arranges tastings right at her home, in Israel. Einat delivers lectures and her guests get acquainted with the best Israeli wines. She has become a kind of an ambassador of Israeli wines right among Israeli people. To strengthen her profile, she has received a professional education due to passing several levels WSET, sommelier and taster courses and working with winemakers directly at their production sites. 

In the midsummer of 2021, the presentation of “3 CATS” – Einat Klein’s wines – took place. There had been only 1000 bottles produced. The label was created by Andrei Makarevitch, a famous rock musician, who is also known to be an artist. “3 CATS” wine is a blend of three grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot harvested in 2018 and aged in French oak barrels. 

Next up was “4 Cats”, made from four grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. And recently, the winery introduced two new products: “Lonely Cat” – the first monovarietal wine from the Petit Verdot and “3 Other Cats” – Cabernet Sauvignon, Marselan and Carignan – this wine is distinguished by high tannin and richness. “Cats” can be bought in sets and this is a great idea when it’s hard to decide. The set consists of three wines: “4 Cats”, “3 Other Cats” and “Lonely Cat”.

“I want to tell the Israeli people and the whole world that Israel is not just archaeology and religion, it is also very decent wines, – she says. – And in this regard, we can’t help but agree with Robert Parker saying that Israeli wines are getting better and better and some of them are just excellent”.
