Behind the wine: Peter Stern
If you sit down this year to a Purim meal where quality wine is plentiful, you'll have Peter Stern to thank. The Californian is considered one of the biggest players in turning the kosher wine industry into something to brag about. Stern was hired by the Golan Heights Winery in 1982 to work on a new project. With a name like Stern, the general manager who brought him on staff assumed he was Jewish - which was incorrect. Stern also didn't know anything about kosher wine. Fortunately, he stuck around anyway. Stern worked as the company's wine-making consultant, and in time became an expert on kosher wine. He brought a number of UC-Davis graduates into the company, who he mentored and directed. Stern imported new wine-making technologies and set new standards for the company. When not in Israel, Stern is the winemaker for Hertzog Wine Cellars in California. In 2002, he became the wine-making consultant for Carmel Winery. Today he lives in semi-retirement.

The story of Peter Stern, the legendary consultant of the Golan Heights Winery who changed the Israeli and kosher wine worlds forever.
The person who created change, setting new standards for others to follow, was a Californian by the name of Peter Stern. He deserves more credit than anyone for the Israeli wine revolution. When in 1982 the first general manager of the Golan Heights Winery was looking for a trained winemaker from California for his new winery project, he was given the name of Peter Stern. As he had a Jewish name, it was presumed he was Jewish, and he was invited for an interview. It later transpired that he wasn't Jewish, but it started off a relationship between Stern and the Golan Heights Winery that was to last 20 years. Stern was invited to design the winery and to be the winemaking consultant. At that time he did not know what kosher wine was, but ended up becoming a world expert. He was intimately involved with all aspects of the new winery, including the clever choice of the Yarden brand name and the famous oil lamp logo. He was given the task of finding winemakers and brought a succession of young UC Davis graduates - all of whom went on to make a name for themselves in the wine world, after benefiting from his supervision and direction. Stern was the first person to take Israeli winemaking to the vineyard. His aim was to "grow wine," not just grapes. He imported New World winemaking technology to Israel and pursued new standards of excellence in the winery itself. The wines produced by his protégés won quick recognition - the Yarden and Gamla wines were immediately acknowledged as Israel's first world-class wines. In 1987 the Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon 1984 won both the gold medal and the Winiarski Trophy as the best wine in the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London. Then Yarden wines won three consecutive Grand Prix d'Honneur Trophies at Vinexpo in Bordeaux. Israeli wine was on the international stage. It was appropriate that when Yarden Katzrin 1990, Israel's first luxury wine, was launched, it was Stern who signed the back label. When not visiting Israel, Stern was the winemaker for Herzog Wine Cellars, the California winery owned by Royal Wine Corp. and owner of brands like Herzog Reserve, Baron Herzog and Weinstock. In 2002, Stern became winemaking consultant for Carmel Winery and went on to further successes. He advised Carmel in planning the transition from mass market to quality. He assisted with the induction of a new winemaking team, and in the introduction of new standards at both Carmel and its subsidiary, Yatir Winery.
