The winery is situated in Hefer Valley, Israel, and its vineyards are located mostly in the Upper Galilee, one of Israel’s high altitude regions best suited for high quality wines.

The single vineyard series mostly comes from vineyards in the Jezreel Valley, Judean Hills, and Upper Galilee regions like Manara. The Jezreel Valley is filled with heavy valley soil at a lower altitude compared to the other vineyards.

The grapes are handpicked, arrive at the winery and undergo a process of destemming, fermentation and pressing before being sent to mature for 12 months in French oak barrels, approximately half of which are new. The wine is then bottled without any of the clarification processes and after coarse filtration alone, to preserve the gamut of flavors.
