THE GALILEE REGION

Rugged mountaintops
kissed by the Kinneret

Our vineyards, situated in the Upper Galilee and the Golan Heights, reach soaring heights: 650-850 meters above sea level. They enjoy relatively low temperatures, high precipitation, and a unique environment for quality grapes to flourish.

Part of the credit for the glorious terrain is owed to the Kinneret, or the Sea of Galilee, that runs through the heart of the region.

Its many distributary streams flow alongside the land, where water laps up to soil to create a unique terroir. This profusion of nutrient-rich vineyards across the region-which are consistently cool in temperature, yet offer variations in terroir-allow us to choose from a diverse selection of superior grapes.

OUR PROCESS

“Our process combines centuries-old traditional winemaking with more forward-thinking techniques”

says Itay Lahat, winemaking consultant. While we respect the time-honored ways of working the land, we embrace innovative methods to produce more robust, expressive grapes.

Our family-owned winery allows intimate supervision over every detail of the process-which starts with growing and picking. “Part of the process is reigning in the exuberance of the fruit, and crafting a wine that is more nuanced and refined. To do that, we pick the grapes when they’re just ripe.”

Itay explains that for much of the process, he prefers to take a step back. “Our intentions are those of good parents-we guide the wines without coddling.” This hands-off approach of less moving, filtering, or interrupting allows the wines to mature with fuller flavors, higher quality, and lush textures.”

OUR APPROACH

To grow anything, you have to pay attention.

“Taking your time with wine is of paramount importance,”
says Yossi Eisikovits, winemaker. Sourcing the best vineyards, cultivating the vines, and letting the wine age in oak barrels for an extended period with minimal intervention, does take time. But the results make the time spent well worthwhile.

The unhurried process allows us to create wines that are in harmony with our vision: to craft wines that are a genuine representation of the land they grow on and our heritage.
