About the winery Golan Heights Winery
The wines of Golan Heights Winery are products from the Golan Heights (Israeli settlement).
As everywhere in the world in the best wine regions, everything revolves around the "terroir", the combination of soil and climate, also at Golan Heights Winery. Although the area originally has a warm climate, the vineyards of this winery are still classified as "cool climate" due to the high location. This, in combination with the volcanic subsoil, makes their wines among the best in the world.
The most famous wine guide on Israeli wines, Rogov, gives Golan Heights Winery 5 stars and writes: "From the moment they produced their first wines in 1984, there is no doubt that Golan Heights Winery has placed the region on the world wine list. They are the leader in quality. The chief winemaker, Victor Schoenfeld, knows what he is doing. He was trained in California, France and Australia and combines old and new world style".
