    Or Haganuz Winery, Israel
    Or Haganuz Winery Aharon Ziv - Winemaker Winery Image
    High quality wine is always the result of excellent ingredients. Or Haganuz wines are based on grapes grown in prominent vineyards in the area of Or Haganuz, Mount Meron and Dalton. The vineyards enjoy the unique northern Galilee climate at heights ranging from 780 to 870 meters (2400 - 2500 feet) above sea level, which is optimal for high quality grapes. These vineyards grow in plots rich with history that can be tracedback hundreds of years. Or Haganuz Winery was founded in 2005 at the foot of Mount Meron, and it strives to produce high quality wines with a true “boutique” feeling. Grapes are strictly selected from among the senior vineyards separately for each series. The harmony between the soil and the different wines transforms the entire production into a much more personal process. The unique blends combine high quality vineyards and the special terroir of the Mount Meron region is one to give Or Haganuz wines the rich aromas and flavors that characterize them.

    With a rich history of wine production dating back to biblical times, Israel is a part of the cradle of wine civilization. Here, wine was commonly used for religious ceremonies as well as for general consumption. During Roman times, it was a popular export, but during Islamic rule around 1300, production was virtually extinguished. The modern era of Israeli winemaking began in the late 19th century with help from Bordeaux’s Rothschild family. Accordingly, most grapes grown in Israel today are made from native French varieties. Indigenous varieties are all but extinct, though oenologists have made recent attempts to rediscover ancient varieties such as Marawi for commercial wine production.

    In Israel’s Mediterranean climate, humidity and drought can be problematic, concentrating much of the country’s grape growing in the north near Galilee, Samaria near the coast and at higher elevations in the east. The most successful red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, while the best whites are made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Many, though by no means all, Israeli wines are certified Kosher.

    Gewürztraminer, an expressive and aromatically distinctive white grape variety, is considered a noble variety in the Alsace region of France, and produces wonderful wines in the mountainous Alto Adige region of NE Italy. Generally this grape grows well in cooler regions and its natural intensity makes it a great ally for flavorful cuisine such as Indian, Middle Eastern or Moroccan. Somm Secret—Because of a charming perfume and tendency towards slight sweetness, Gewürztraminer makes for an excellent gateway wine for those who love sweet wines but want to venture into the realm of drier whites.
