THINGS I LOVE THURSDAYS

Wines in Cana, Israel | TILT

Growing up Catholic, we were taught that Cana is where the first miracle happened, Jesus transformed water into the wine at a Wedding. During our pilgrimage, the group dropped by at the oldest wine store in Cana and it is also the most popular one.

The storekeeper takes great pride in selling their essential bottle of Cana wine. Like the stone jars, it’s not original, which is just as well. For this was the wine Jesus provided at the wedding in John’s Gospel. According to the storekeeper there are different grades of Cana wine and the best wine is quite special. They gave each of us a shot. Aside from quality wine, the storekeepers are friendly and accommodating. They happily answered all of my questions and gave me 2 more shots to shut me up. Kidding!

I don’t always drink wine but when I do I’m very selective. I like mine silky, powerful, and refined… ehem… Barolo. Ehem. Cana wines surely made me craving for more.

  1. I am a religious person and this is just so cool. Jesus turning water into wine is of my favorites. I would love to go to Cana and get a feel for where Jesus was during his time on earth and where the first miracle took place. Of course, I’m a big fan of wine, too.
