Expressing our Distinctive Terroir. 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. Our wines serve as a unique expression of a variety of regional influences: the volcanic soil that is so characteristic of our region; The gusty snow storms in winter, the cool nights and the long, hot and dry days of summer; The winegrowers in the vineyards with their wind-chapped, sun-scorched faces; And our professional winemaking team, with its vast experience, expertise and creativity. All these join together in every bottle of our high-quality wines.
