MY WINE- Nevo 2012
On an early September 2012 morning, I picked 412 kg of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the high mountains of the Galilee (900 m). The grapes were transported to the Soreq Winery where I crushed them and added yeast. The must fermented for 3 weeks at a temperature of 28 degrees. The next step was to press the must and track the Melolactic fermentation. The wine was building body in a one year old French oak barrel.
On July 2013 I created a blend (after alot of delightful experiments...) and mixed the Cabernet sauvignon with 4% of Merlot from Jerusalem mountain's and 3% of Petit Verdot from the Ella valley.
on november 15 ,2013 the wine was botteled.
CHEERS - LECHAYIM!
MY WINE- Aner 2014
2014 Cabernet Sovinion from two different vineyards in the Golan highs. the high altitude and the volcanic soil contribute to a complex wine rich and delightful. 16 mounts in a new American oak barrel.
It was surrealistic . when I was harvesting the grapes in a beautiful vineyard , and could hear the sound's of the Syrian civil war on the other side of the border. I wish the war there will end soon.
"When they reached the valley of eshkol, they cut off a branch bearing a single cluster of grapes. Two of them carried it on a pole between them..." (Numbers 13:23)

THE FIRST WINE MAKER
"Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent"(Genesis 9:20-1).
Drink responsibly, you never know who might enter your tent... and yes, 3800 years ago people were making wine in the land of Israel.
