 The Nation, 06/16/1956 - Outpost on the Negev. Heat, Dust and Sheep by Wakefield, Dan
Sde Boker was started in 1952 by a dozen Israelis who had come to Negev in the 1948-49 war with the Arab and caught the peculiar philosophic fever of the desert.
...The main camp of Sde Boker was cold and pale, the typical narrow kibbutz houses (long single-story buildings divided into four or five separate rooms) looking like a misplaced motel on the blank grey face of the dust that stared at the equally expressionless sky...
...But there is nothing between the borders and Sde Boker except the empty immensity of the Negev landscape, animated only by the shifting movements of the 'Beduins and bands of Arab' smugglers and raiders from Egypt and Jordan who move back and forth in the shrouded business of inter-tribal feuds and the hashish trade...

The 30th anniversary of the death of Israel's first Prime Minister and the man who declared the State of Israel's independence, David Ben-Gurion, was commemorated today in the Negev community Sde Boker.

He quoted Ben-Gurion as having said that though Israel is militarily able to capture all of "western Land of Israel," it would then not be able to be both Jewish and democratic because of the large number of Arabs living there.

 The Wine & Food Forum at Strat's Place: Five Israeli reds
Tishbi, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kerem Sde Boker, Special Reserve, 1999: Perhaps reflecting that this wine was made from a vineyard located in the heart of the Negev Dessert, it is not so much earthy and herbal as it is marked distinctly by green olive and spice flavors.
Full bodied and still tight and tannic because of its youth but already showing signs of opening to reveal ripe and well focused fl cherry and currant flavors, this generous wine, with its long aftertaste, promises to drink very well from 2003 — 2006 or longer.
All the wines were opened 1 hour before the tasting to allow dissipation of any bottle stink or unwanted odours; and all present had the opportunity to return and re-taste any of the preceding bottles at the end.
