Though Mendelbaum Cellars opened in 2011, some of its bottles contain 5,000 years of history. That's because its specialty is Holy Land wine: wine made from grapes harvested in Galilee and other parts of Israel. The staff describes this process during their weekly history class, The Israeli Wine Trail: Ancient and Modern, which preps customers to enjoy bottles of Dead Sea Rose Dry, David's Slingshot dessert wine, or the dark and rich Mt. Sinai. Aside from these signature bottles, the winery also produces Texas varietals and blends, including a spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, a Cabernet-Tempranillo blend, and a ruby-red Merlot.
