Golan Heights Winery is an Israeli winery located in Katzrin, in the Golan Heights region of Israel. The winery was founded in 1983 by four kibbutzim (collective farms) in the area, and has since grown to become one of Israel's most important and influential wineries.
Golan Heights Winery produces a wide range of wines, including red, white, and rosé wines made from a variety of grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gewürztraminer. The winery uses state-of-the-art technology in its winemaking processes, and is committed to sustainable agriculture and environmental practices.
One of the winery's most famous wines is the Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon, which is made from grapes grown in the Golan Heights region. This wine has received numerous awards and accolades, including recognition from Wine Spectator, Wine & Spirits, and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Golan Heights Winery is also known for its Yarden Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine, which is made from Chardonnay grapes and is aged for several years on its lees to develop a rich and complex flavor profile.
In addition to producing wine, Golan Heights Winery is also involved in promoting and advancing the Israeli wine industry as a whole. The winery has established a research and development center to explore new winemaking techniques and grape varieties, and has worked with other wineries and research institutions to promote sustainable agriculture and environmentally friendly practices in the industry.
