This ruby-colored wine offers a bouquet of cherry and sage. A framework of rich tannins supports flavors of black plum, raspberry, cherry preserves, chocolate and anise that round off in a finish that is equal parts spicy and bright.
One place in Israel enjoys ideal conditions, as in Bordeaux or Tuscany, for producing internationally renowned wines. Here in the Golan Heights, in this breathtaking strip of land, everything begins with the right conditions – volcanic basaltic soil, suitable topography and cool high-altitude climate. This unique combination is what gives the Golan Heights its second name – “wine country.”
Golan Heights Winery marketing its wines under four leading brands – Yarden, Gamla, Mount Hermon and Golan. The Winery is considered Israel’s leading winery when it comes to wine quality, technological innovation, and new variety development.
Since it was founded in 1983, Golan Heights Winery has played a significant role in developing and nurturing Israel’s current wine culture. The Winery also has altered the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide, and has firmly placed Israel on the world wine map.
In the words of Victor Schoenfeld, our Head Winemaker, “Wine conveys a feeling of its source from within. The region in which the grapes are grown is embedded in the taste, aroma and color of the wine. Wine, therefore, has the power to embody the culture, language, scents and people of its region.”
We strive to produce wines that best convey the distinctive terroir of the Golan Heights.
