Carmel Winery is the historic winery of Israel since it was founded in 1882 by Baron Edmond de Rothschild. He invested in the winery after he already owned a winery in France. As a Jew, he also wanted to own a winery in the Holy Land.

Carmel winery is the biggest winery in Israel (15.000.000 bottles annually).
They own vineyards spread all over the country, from the Upper Galilee until the Negev. The wineries are located in two regions, at Rishon Le Zion, south of Tel Aviv, which centres more the culture of the winery with museums and visitor center. And at Zichron Yaacov, south of Haifa where the main wine gets produces. Each has deep underground cellars built by Rothschild in the 19th century.

Carmel also has two small, state-of-the-art wineries close to key vineyards, to allow production of small quantities of handcrafted wines. These are Kayoumi Winery, situated in the Upper Galilee, and Yatir Winery, in the northeastern Negev. The story of Carmel represents the story of Israel, and the recent developments of Carmel wines, symbolizes the revolution of Israeli wine in recent years. As Israel improved tremendously in the last decade with winemaking, Carmel Winery had to also follow this upward trend and improve their quality of wine. In the last years they have proved to be at the top of winemaking with some excellent quality wine of their own produce and from their small wineries, Yatir, and Kayoumi and the Single Vineyard Series.
