GOLAN HEIGHTS REGION
The place where the Israel wine revolution began
The Golan Heights is in the north east of the country. This was where new world winemaking expertise first arrived in Israel in the 1980’s, starting the quality wine revolution. The Golan is a volcanic plateau overlooked by the snow-covered Mount Hermon and overlooking the Sea of Galilee. The soils are volcanic tuff and basalt stone. Elevations rise up to 1,200 meters above sea level.
The wineries which may be visited on the Golan Heights include:
Assaf – Visit the unique Kedem Wine Village
Bazelet Hagolan (K) – The first boutique winery on the Golan
Chateau Golan – Grand and individualistic winery.
Golan Heights (K) – Responsible for the quality revolution in Israel
