Zichron Yaacov (Wine Country), Israel (5/27/2010) – We stopped for a day in one of the most charming places in Israel. 

The center of one of Israel’s premier wine producing areas, the small town of Zichron Yaacov (population 18,500) draws many tourists attracted to its picturesque setting and historic city center with its wonderfully restored main street (Hameyasdim Street) of original 19th century homes.  

Hameyasim Street is one of the quaintest streets in Israel lined with charming restaurants, coffeehouses, and boutiques selling locally-made crafts, jewelry, and antiques. 

Founded in 1882 by Romanian Jews, Zichron Yaacov was one of Palestine’s first Zionist settlements. It is here in 1885 Baron de Rothschild helped to establish the first winery in Israel, the Carmel-Mizrahi Winery that is now the largest winery in Israel. We visited the reservation-only Carmel Winery and the manager was kind to let us taste a few wines – very nice. 

We stayed in a very nice Israeli Zimmer next to Zichron Yaacov's main street. Zimmers are few-unit guesthouses that people have added to their homes and can be very nice.
