Daniel Rogov, Israel's preeminent wine critic, helped shape Israel's wine revolution. His Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines thrust Israeli wine into the international spotlight in 2005. New editions, published annually, chronicled dramatic improvements in the Israeli wine industry. Rogov wrote weekly wine and restaurant columns for Ha’aretz, a leading Israeli newspaper, and contributed regularly to the prestigious, international wine guides Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Book and Wine Report by Tom Stevenson. In addition to Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines, he authored 2010 and 2011 editions of Rogov’s Guide to World Kosher Wines.
Just before he passed away in September 2011, Daniel Rogov put the finishing touches on the 2012 edition of his Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines. First published in 2005, this annual guidebook has become the source of information on Israel's flourishing wine industry. This newest and final edition, The Ultimate Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines, is the most comprehensive ever. It describes, sorts and ranks nearly 2,500 wines from more than 150 wineries. The Ultimate Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines is Daniel Rogov's final legacy, the definitive edition of his classic guidebook.
