Vin Collective x Israel & Palestine! Hate to play favorites but this might have been my favorite trip of all time? The wines in this region are fascinating, unexpected, and complex - not unlike the place.
A few (very non-exhaustive) takeaways and highlights:
  • WINE CAN GROW IN THE DESERT! AND IT IS AMAZING!
  • You cannot beat Palestinian hospitality.
  • Have great car insurance and prepared for goats to swarm your car when on backroads.
  • Maybe make sure you have cell service before you hike into the unknowns of the Palestinian hillsides.
  • Camping on a rooftop in Tel Aviv sounds fun and is fun. It is also unbearably hot in August.

Vin Collective x Portugal! Kicked off our first Portugal trip with the most magical week in Lisbon, Alentejo, Porto, and the Douro Valley. Some takeaways: 

  • Nothing beats a chilled Vinho Verde poolside
  • Keep booking the hidden gems
  • The Portuguese speak better English than us
  • Rent a car with an amazing enging if you would like to go > 50kmp up the mountains of the Douro Valley
