The 21st Judean Hills/Mateh Yehudah Wine Festival
The event will also have food stalls, live jazz music and wine workshops. Tickets cost NIS 60 per person for entry to the festival or NIS 130 with a shuttle bus from either Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. There is also the option to attend a kosher wine workshop for an additional NIS 60 per person. Tickets can be purchased on the wine festival website.
The wine festival continues throughout the month of December with weekend winery events. Here is a video produced last year to celebrate 20 years of wine in the Judean Hills:
Each Friday during the festival will feature a tour of a few local wineries, starting at 10 am from the Mateh Yehuda Regional Council next to Moshav Naham and ending at 2pm. The cost of each tour is NIS 100 per person.
