Israeli Winery Continues to Produce Amidst Warfare

In Golan Heights, a territory that falls between Israel and Syria, Pelter Winery continues regular production even though “a few fields away a civil war ensues,” according to CNN. Tourist visits haven’t slowed, harvest goes on as normal and over 100,000 bottles continue to be produced here every year despite the sound of sirens and a near brush with an airstrike earlier this year in which shrapnel hit some tanks and several thousand gallons of wine was lost. Though frightening, Pelter remains positive, its owner insisting “it’s not something to be afraid of.” [CNN]
