"Most dynamic region for boutique wineries & small cuvee wine making..."
The ultimate Israel Wine Experience: The Judean Hills is in the center of the country, on the slopes rising towards the Jerusalem mountains. The region has undergone a renaissance since the early 1990’s. It can be characterized by the numerous boutique wineries making wine from individual plots in small vineyards reflecting the local terroir. The soils are shallow terra rossa on a limestone bedrock, and the vineyards rise from 400 to 900 meters above sea level.
The wineries which may be visited in the Judean Hills wine region include: Agur, a Cabinet maker turned artisan winemaker, Clos de Gat Estate Winery, Castel, Ella Valley, the beautiful vineyards where David fought Goliath, Flam Winery, Katlav Winery, Montefiore Family Winery that represents both the history of Israel & of Israeli wine, Mony Winery, an Israeli Arab Christian family making kosher wines, Tzora Winery, run by Israel’s first Master of Wine and Zafririm Garagiste owned by archaeologists!
