The saying “The past is the best prophecy of the future” symbolizes the traditional-modern approach with which this winery operates today. Although the winery is most definitely a commercial and progressive enterprise, a meticulous eye is always still kept on the grapes, which are cultivated and hand picked in their vineyards. The geographic locations of the vineyards have been carefully chosen from the optimal vine-growing regions in the country - from Sde Boker in the south to the Golan Heights in the north.
The variations in the different soils and climates are reflected in each one of the wines, promoting their individuality. The barrels used for aging many of the wines are produced from both French and American oak. The oak wood forests from which the barrels come are carefully selected, in order to determine the diversity in flavor and aroma that each region has to offer. This advantage gives consumers the option to enjoy wines with varied styles and characters.
