Download PDF for this date

The export of Palestine wines has increased thirty per cent this year it was reported at the annual meeting of the Palestine vine growers’ federation, now in session here. Most of the increased export was to the United States, the report stated.

Since America repealed prohibition, Palestine has been receiving urgent requests for tens of thousands of bottles of Jewish wine.

Rischon-le-Zion, one of the most important wine centers in Palestine, has started new vine plantations and the entire industry in Palestine is in a most hopeful mood, it was said at the Jerusalem meeting.
