Discover Israeli wines at Bar Fisk

Bar Fisk brings you all the best from Tel Aviv cuisine. Many know that food from Israel is a tasty sensation but not a lot of us are familiar with the wines from this region. That is why Bar Fisk decided to bring their knowledge to Amsterdam with the introduction of their new wine menu, consisting entirely of Israeli wines. Perfect for an evening of wining and dining.
