Oded Shoham, born in Israel and raised in America, is arguably the most experienced wine personality in the country! There is barely a facet of the wine business that he has not covered. He has worked for the largest wineries in the country as well as small boutique wineries. He has planted vines, managed vineyards and even made his own wine. Oded has experience in export, import, marketing and sales. He has also managed a retail wine shop and worked for a supermarket chain. He is founder of Handcrafted Wines of Israel, a conglomerate that includes some of Israel’s finest small wineries. He's also founder of The Israel Wine Experience, offering winery visits, events and tastings. Oded provides a ready smile, amusing stories to cover every situation and makes use of his unequaled knowledge of Israeli wine.
Although Israel is a small country, it has an incredibly diverse landscape (terroir) that is perfectly attuned to the growth and production of fine wine. There are several wine regions, each imbibing the wines with their own unique qualities. These include the Golan Heights wine region, the Galilee wine region, Mount Carmel wine region, the famous Judean Hills wine region, and the Negev wine region.
