Our wine grapes are harvested from vineyards in the mountains and hills of Judah: ‘Mata’, ‘Ein Kerem’ and ‘Givat Yeshayahu’.
Despite our location in the hot Middle East, the vines and we enjoy winter and rain and cold and the hot summer months – a cool breeze that ventilates the grapes, prevents diseases and allows them to mature ripening. The layer of limestone beneath the thin layer of soil restrains the crop and improves it, and our vine comes out particularly profitable from the sharp transition between high temperatures during the day and low temperatures at night.
Climate on a typical summer day – during the ripening of the grapes the air that rises from the warm soil, allows cold winds to blow from the sea to the land. After about 40 km above the mainland, the winds reach our area when they are dry. This climate prevents diseases and rot and allows the grapes to reach full ripening and great flavors.
The proximity of the vineyards to the winery shortens the waiting time of the grapes from the moment of harvest to mashing, and they arrive at the winery at their best. The plots on which our grapes are grown were carefully selected and in long-term agreements (‘Mata’, ‘Ein Kerem’) and the plot on Givat Yeshayahu was planned and planted ourselves, together with the winemaker Eran Lustigman.
We grow a wide variety of varieties that are good for producing quality crops in our area, among them – Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Morbedre, Sauvignon Blanc, Roseanne and more
