Galil Mountain – 10 Years
Situated at Yiron in the Upper Galilee, on the Lebanese border, Galil Mountain is a joint venture between the Golan Heights Winery and Kibbutz Yiron. The new winery represented the Golan Winery’s desire to have a “foot” in the Upper Galilee, as well as on the Golan. The winery was built with aesthetics in mind, situated next to a vineyard rather than on the usual industrial estate. The design is stylish, modern and practical. They produce about a million bottles a year from five Upper Galilee vineyards. The top of the line wines are two blends called Yiron and Meron. The winery is known for excellent value for money wines. The Avivim white and Pinot Noir are of particular interest.
