“In the past, Israeli wine exports were based largely on kosher wines, but today, our wines garner international attention and recognition,” said Michal Meeman of IEI.

The top markets for Israeli wine include the United States, France, the UK, Canada, and Poland.

Sales to Poland were up over 60% from 2010, while the United States drank the vast majority of Israel’s wine, at a total of $12.2 million.
