Democracy & Technology Blog “Kosher” Wine with a Technology Bouquet

If you would like to help Israel’s remarkable entrepreneurial breeding ground at Jerusalem College of Technology and also have the most delicious possible tour of the holy land, I commend to you the unique wine tasting tour that tech venture capitalist Jon Medved and friends have organized for this fall.
Remember when “Kosher wine” had almost nothing going for it but its religious approval–and then only if you were Jewish? (I won’t mention any labels.) Those days are over. In Israel recently I was treated to some of the most excellent vintages I’ve ever enjoyed. Some has been grown on the famous slopes of the Golan Heights. Several vintages from Yarden vintners already have an international following.
George Gilder recently visited Jerusalem College of Technology, as did I. It seems like a fine institution that is well worth support.
