HUGH JOHNSON POCKET WINE BOOK 201711.09.2016
The 40th Anniversary Edition of Hugh Johnson's Pocket Wine Book 2017 awarded Flam Winery its highest ranking of 4 stars.
Hugh Johnson, originally from Britain, is one of the world’s prominent and admired wine writers. His wine guide was first published exactly forty years ago in 1977, and it seems that no one has been able to compete with him with regard to content and precision in his wine writings. He relates to the wineries themselves, how they have functioned over the years, the winemaker’s creativity, grape sources and vineyard quality, the winery’s production technology and, of course, the wine itself. He uses the sum total of these parameters to create a broader picture and rank the winery. This is the most famous and best-selling wine guide of all time.
This year, forty years after the book was released, Flam Winery was awarded the highest rank – four stars.
Obviously this is the best compliment we could wish for and serves to endorse our endeavor and the aspirations and goals we set ourselves when establishing Flam Winery – to create Israeli wines that meet the highest international quality standards.
Hugh Johnson wrote the following about our wines: Flam Noble – superb, elegant; Flam Syrah Reserve – fruit-forward; Flam Merlot Reserve – deep; Flam Classico – great value; Flam Blanc – Excellent, fresh, fragrant; and Flam Rose – crisp.
