The Judean Hills terroir has been a recognized wine country for over 3300 years
The archeological evidence found in nearly every corner of the land leaves no room for doubt – grapes grew on these grounds and wine was made here. Even historical sources reveal that the Judean region was recognized as wine country from the dawn of our known days (“Judah, thee shall thy brethren praise;”, Genesis 49).
From the very beginning, to this day, we continue to plant our vineyards, cultivate our grounds, and study the unique terroir with a vision of quality as our guide. All our vineyards are located in the Judean Hills, by our winery, at an average height of approximately 750 meters above sea level.
In the mid 1990’s we partnered with Tzuba, a kibbutz located near our original winery in Ramat Raziel, to plant approximately 200 acres of quality vineyards, which are tended to by the kibbutz members, in accordance with our specified protocol. In 2010, we came to the realization that we should also be winegrowers ourselves – we partnered with another kibbutz, Ma’ale HaHamisha, and to this day have planted approximately 200 acres with them, where we work the land.
