Established at the dawn of the millennium, blends and varietals from Galil Mountain wines gain their complex flavors from six vineyards dotting the stony gorges of Israel’s Upper Galilee mountain range. With its varied elevations hundreds of feet above sea level, cool climate, and mineral-rich slopes of soil, the Golan Heights growing region—also home to Golan Heights Winery’s other Yarden, Gilgal, and Golan brands—is topographically ideal for the winery’s mission of creating a "diverse cultivating environment." Galil Mountain sources twelve varieties of grapes for their celebrated rose, shiraz, pinot noir, and more.
Focused on its products’ contrasts and juxtapositions, Golan Heights Winery preserves the tastes of Galil’s flagship Yiron and other products by aging them in oak barrels until ideal maturity is reached. Full-bodied and lush, Galil Yiron is aged in barrels 16 months to fully develop its plum and berry flavors, and has won gold at France’s Challenge International Du Vin 2012, as well as competitions in Israel, Italy, and Germany. Because of the company’s proximity to its vineyards, harvested grapes are brought fresh to the winery within hours of their picking.
