Jacques Capsouto’s adventures in gastronomy and wine have taken him around the world. Egypt, Israel, France and New York provided many languages and cultures that shaped his appreciation and palate for haute cuisine. In the last few years, he fulfilled a lifelong dream by planting a vineyard in Israel’s Galilee. Finally, he is bringing his new wines to New York, under the label Cotes de Galilee Village.
On July 17, Jacques visited the Israel Economic Mission in New York to show off his new wines, one a white and one a rose. He sat down with our attache, Nili Shalev, and told the story of his personal connections to wine and Israel, and conducted a private, guided tasting. Jacques’s tale was inspiring and gripping, telling the story of an optimistic young immigrant who found success in the United States, interweaving threads of Jewish history, Sephardic heritage and passionate Zionism.
