Soil. Topography. Climate.
Three distinct grape-growing conditions for producing quality wines on an international level. In Israel, optimal conditions exist in the Golan Heights.
As in other premier wine regions worldwide, everything in this magical strip of land begins with the right conditions in the Golan, a combination of volcanic basaltic soil, suitable topography and high altitude resulting in cool climate. This is what gives the Golan Heights its second name: "Wine Country". Over the years, the distinctive wines of the Golan Heights Winery have become world-renowned, winning dozens of awards at prestigious international competitions. Indeed, the Winery has placed Israel on the world wine map. Since its founding in 1983, the Golan Heights Winery has marketed three leading brands Yarden, Gamla and Golan. Today, it is considered Israels leading winery when it comes to wine quality, technological innovation, and new variety development. The Winery has played a significant role in nurturing the countrys current wine culture, and has altered the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide.
