Continue to Mount Carmel, to the place where Elijah had his contest with the prophets of Ba’al and brought down fire from Heaven. Then, it’s on to the Tishbi Winery in the western Carmel Mountains, now managed by the fourth generation of its founders, where Tishbi’s vineyards take advantage of terroires and climates country-wide to produce its fine blends and varietals.
