Galil mountain winery The Upper Galilee mountain range is the heart and the soul for Galil Mountain Winery. Sitting at the top of 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 five 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.

The quality of a wine starts in the vineyard – and the quality of a vineyard is dependent on several factors. From designated growing areas, climate and precipitation to topography, soil type and wind direction, each parameter greatly influences the quality and taste of the final product.

Galil Mountain Winery's five well-kept vineyards are located in the Upper Galilee, near the Winery's facilities. Situated in elevated regions at altitudes ranging from 420 to 800 meters above sea level, each vineyard exhibits a set of distinctive characteristics. This diverse array of cultivated areas means that each harvest features a mix of grapes that uniquely contributes to Galil Mountain's offering. Such diversity, combined with the Winery's cutting- edge production facilities and highly professional staff, enables Galil Mountain to bring out the best in its grapes, and produce complex wines that are rich in flavor and aroma.

Overseeing the entire winemaking process, Galil Mountain's skilled and seasoned winemakers make perfect use of these assets to create a line of wines that reflects the Winery's unique nature.

WINEMAKER
Micha Vaadia, chief winemaker at Galil Mountain Winery, studied at the horticulture program at The Hebrew University Faculty of Agriculture. After completing his BA, Vaadia was accepted to the world-renowned oenology program at the University of California at Davis. He then worked briefly at the Golan Heights Winery, the parent company of Galil Mountain. Golan Heights management was so impressed with Vaadia that it decided to cover part of his tuition at Davis.

Following his Masters studies, Vaadia entered the California wine industry, working at J. Wine Co., Navarro Vineyards, and La Crema Winery. Recognizing the value in gaining experience in different climates and winemaking styles, Vaadia also spent time at Cloudy Bay Vineyards in New Zealand and Catena in Argentina before coming home.
