Soil. Topography. Climate.
One place in Israel enjoys ideal conditions, as in Bordeaux or Tuscany,
for producing internationally renowned wines. Here in the Golan Heights, in this breathtaking strip of land, everything begins with the right conditions – volcanic basaltic soil, suitable topography and cool high-altitude climate. This unique combination is what gives the Golan Heights its second name – “wine country.”
Golan Heights Winery marketing its wines under four leading brands – Yarden, Gamla, Mount Hermon and Golan. The Winery is considered Israel’s leading winery when it comes to wine quality, technological innovation, and new variety development.
