Wine maker notes
Reichan is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah and Merlot. Its grapes were cultivated at top-quality vineyards near Alma vineyard in the Upper Galilee. After a maturation period of 12 months in new oak casks, we created a blend characterized by its mature and concentrated red and black fruit, accompanied by a hint of dark chocolate, coffee and nougat. A complex and elegant wine, that is drinkable now, but will only get better after maturation in comfortable conditions.
Reichan Mountain, with a height of 708 meters, is one of the most impressive on the Alma region in the Upper Galilee. This mountainous region, which is surrounded by basalt rocks, offers an exceptional growth area for the grapes of the wine.
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.
