Wine maker notes
The name of the wine symbolizes the altitude of the vineyard above sea level.
This wine is grown from a vineyard at an altitude of 720 meters above sea level, in the Godrim Mountains which lies between the Dovav Settlements and the Lebanese border. After a maturation period of 14 months in oak casks, most of which are made from French oak, the wine is bottled without shading.
This wine has the potential to evolve gracefully for a long period time.
Barkan winery was born at the end of the 19th century. Its current incarnation is a wine paradise. So how did we do that?
It was actually simple. From the very first days of our existence, we have concentrated our attention on one thing only: grapes’ quality. The top-grade breeds were brought from all over the world and put in Barkan vineyards in Israel. Nowadays, there are dozens of breeds occupying a grand total of over 10 square kilometers of vineyards in winery’s possession, while every breed is grown in an area suitable for it.
In 2000, a new sophisticated winery was established at Hulda kibbutz located in the Judean plain. The winery was designed with 21st century in mind. It boasts the most advanced production technologies in the world. The winery includes laboratories, farms, the packaging center, and the marketing & logistics center. Thanks to the enormous assortment of wine breeds and growth areas, the advanced fermentation methods, as well as over 5,000 natural oak barrels, Barkan winery is a real wine paradise.
