CLOS DE GAT, Judean Hills

Israel’s most authentic estate winery

A genuine estate winery created by owner winemaker Eyal Rotem, who spent a number of years in Australia. The winery, which is situated in the foothills of the Judean Mountains, used natural yeasts for fermentation.  The wine press situated in the vineyard is a reminder of the ancient history of winemaking on the same site. The fact that the winery building was used as Yitzhak Rabin’s headquarters in the War of Independence is a reminder of Israel’s modern history.  Clos de Gat is particularly well known for its Syrah, Merlot and Chardonnay.
