The winery grows most of the grapes itself in the northern Golan, where we get our main varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Johannesburg Riesling, Viognier, Nebbiolo and Gamma Noir.

In addition, we get Cabernet Franc from the Tsiiv’on Winery in the Upper Galilee in the Mount Meron area, as well as Syrah grapes from a vineyard in Nov, in the southern Golan, at an altitude of 500 meters.

To enrich our flavors and aromas we get grapes from the vineyards of Moshav Sha’al, Kidmat Zvi and the agricultural farm near Merom Golan: varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.

Soil Type

The soil in the Golan Heights is mostly basalt; the basalt stone was created in volcanic eruptions which occurred over a million years ago, and the specific composition of the soil differs among its various sub-regions. These differences are mostly due to the age of the soil, its origin and the Earth’s processes.

Volcanic tuff, on which part of our vineyards are grown, is a porous rock, relatively soft, formed from volcanic ash. In the central northern Golan we usually find shallow, rocky soil composed of volcanic rock in different sizes. Further south we find more mature, deeper soil, not rocky.
