The Toby Press notes with sadness the passing of Daniel Rogov, Israel’s pre-eminent wine critic and author of the annual Rogov’s Guide to Israeli Wines. We were literally proofing the 2012 edition of the Rogov’s Guide when we received word of his death on September 7. Toby’s Publisher, Matthew Miller, says:

“Rogov (everyone called him Rogov) and I worked together for eight or nine years on the Rogov’s Guide to Israeli Wines. He worked with great humor and confidence, and relished every moment, every bite, every sip of (good) wine. His exuberance belied his serious professionalism and high standards. I will miss working with him, I’ll missing dining with him, I’ll miss arguing with him. I’ll really miss him.”
