Israeli Wine Debut at ProWine China

September 14, 2016

Although Israel has a long winemaking history, it has only drawn consumers’ attention since it was appeared on the list of the Best Wine of 2014 by Wine Spectator and its boutique wineries was reported by French press. ProWine China will welcome wineries from Israeli to this year’s exhibition, which includes Golan Heights Winery and Galil Mountain Winery.

True To Its Roots

 

The Upper Galilee mountain range is much more than an abode for Galil Mountain Winery; it’s the Winery’s heart and soul. Sitting in a breathtaking spot atop the Upper Galilee mountain range, the innovatively designed winery is committed to revitalizing the region’s rich history of winemaking. Over 2,000 years ago, the mountain range – one of Israel’s highest at more than 1,000 meters above sea level – was a choice location for the cultivation of quality grapevines. Today, the area’s topography, soil and climate make it an ideal home for the vibrant Galil Mountain Winery.

 

Established as a joint venture headed by the world-renowned Golan Heights Winery in 2000, Galil Mountain Winery preserves the delicate balance between tradition and technology. Leveraging six area vineyards, a state-of-the-art production plant and proven expertise, Galil Mountain Winery offers an inspired selection of award-winning wines that remains true to its roots.
