Though founded in the last decade, Bat Shlomo Vineyards has deep ancestral roots. In 1889, Baron Edmond de Rothschild, a preeminent philanthropist involved in the establishment of the State of Israel, founded a field school to facilitate the production of wine in Israel. The school's graduates settled a nearby community named Bat Shlomo, named in honor of the Baron's mother Betty.
In 2010, entrepreneur Elie Wurtman and Napa Valley winemaker Ari Erle partnered to found the new Bat Shlomo Vineyards, revitalizing the original land and fulfilling de Rothschild's legacy. Today we are proud to feature our namesake, Betty de Rothschild, on every Bat Shlomo bottle.
Bat Shlomo Vineyards produces a range of fine wines, many of which have been recognized internationally. Most recently, the Bat Shlomo Rose was honored as one of the 5 best wines in the Middle East by Mark Squires of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. The Betty's Cuvée and Sauvignon Blanc have also scored exceptionally high marks year after year.
