In the times of the Bible, the Promised Land of milk and honey, was Judea and Samaria.
And the greatest symbol of this promise was the vineyard.
After the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D., the Romans uprooted the vines and brought them to Rome.
The vineyards of the Promised Land were laid waste and the land sat fallow for two thousand years.
Today, incredibly, the Promised Land is full of vineyards and Israeli wines are winning international awards.
