Golan Heights Winery

Winemaker: Victor Schoenfeld
Location: Golan Heights

Soil. Topography. Climate.

Three distinct grape-growing conditions for producing quality wines on an international level. In Israel, these optimal conditions exist on the Golan Heights. As in other premier wine regions worldwide, everything in this magical strip of land begins with the right conditions – in the Golan, a combination of volcanic basaltic soil, suitable topography and high altitude resulting in cool climate. This is what gives the Golan Heights its second name: “Wine Country.”

Over the years, the distinctive wines of the Golan Heights Winery have become world-renowned, winning dozens of awards at prestigious international competitions. Indeed, the Winery has placed Israel on the world wine map. Since its founding in 1983, the Golan Heights Winery has created four leading brands – Yarden, Gamla, Hermon and Golan.

Today, it is considered Israel’s leading winery when it comes to wine quality, technological innovation, and new variety development. The Winery has played a significant role in nurturing the country’s current wine culture, and has altered the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide. Golan Heights Winery is the most recognized brand of quality Israeli wine in the world. This is reflected in the many awards Golan Heights Wines have won over many prestigious wine competitions over the world. Golan Heights Winery was awarded the “2012 New World Winery of the Year” Wine Star Award presented by Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Victor Schoenfeld

In 1991, American-born winemaker Victor Schoenfeld arrived to Yarden Golan Heights Winery in the northern region of Israel with a profound winemaking ethic: to produce high quality wines that reflect a sense of place. This philosophy still resonates almost twenty years later, as Schoenfeld’s accomplishments have elevated Golan Heights Winery to an international stage.

Schoenfeld graduated from the University of California Davis in 1988 with a degree in enology. As an undergraduate, he worked at Sonoma’s Preston Vineyards and Winery and Sonoma Creek Winery in California; Baron Wine Cellars in Binyamina, Israel; and in 1988, he was Intern Enologist with the Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa Valley, California. Following graduation, he joined Chateau St. Jean in Sonoma Valley, California, later traveling to France to work with Champagne Jacquesson & Fils.

Golan Heights Winery has four distinct brands of wine:

Hermon, the entry level.
Golan, the classics.
Gamla, the premier varietal wines.
​Yarden, the flagship series.

There is also a special division of Single Vineyards wine. And a series of high class wine named Katzrin, with selected vintages only.
