1848 Wine is a product of the Shor dynasty—a 9th generation Israeli winery. This very first commercial winery in Israel was founded in 1848, hence the name. The inspiration of Rabbi Itzhak Shor was Sir Moses Montefiore, who visited the Holy Land numerous times and encouraged the Jews to plant vines. The winery was originally set in the old city of Jerusalem, and later shifted locations to other parts of Jerusalem. Today it is set in nearby Mishor Adumim.
