The mountains of the Upper Galilee are among the highest mountains in Israel, rising to heights of over 1,000 meters. The topographical structure, quality of the soil and climate, make the mountains of the Galilee an ideal location for growing vineyards with grapes of the highest quality. Golan Heights Winery had long been aware of the region's premium qualities and consequently began planting vineyards in the Kadesh Valley as early as 1995 jointly with Kibbutz Malkiya and Kibbutz Yiftach. In 1997, the first vineyard was planted in Kibbutz Yiron and at the same time the kibbutz decided to establish a winery amidst the natural landscape surrounding it. – Description from iskicm

  • Galil Mountain Winery Viognier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The beautiful hills of Galilee are a fitting backdrop to this very good Viognier - if somewhat precariously close to certain border regions. The wine has a lovely golden colour with a slightly aged note to the bouquet of preserved spiced white fruit. On the palate, the wine is slightly almond bitter with spice and honey on the medium finish (a w... Read More

  • Galil Mountain Winery Viognier 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The best way to describe this is tranquil and serene. This mellow white is in a constant state of zen like a dude in isolation in Nepal. It speaks to me and says "I'm not gonna WOW you with any overpowering fancy pants technique". "I am going to just let you enjoy this glass and keep you happy." Read More

  • Galil Mountain Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Upper Galilee Yiron Kosher 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Yiron is considered as the best value for money of Israeli wines, and this one (2005) definitely the best ever for Yiron (better than the 2003). Read More

  • Galil Mountain Winery Syrah Yiron Kosher 2005

    Snoothrank:

    I am not a typical Syrah drinker. I am more partial to a full bodied red, like a Cab or Cab blend, but this Syrah is truly excellent. Young and full of flavor. There is a great leather texture that mixes a soft tannin structure with a fantastic fruit burst. The fruit eventually overtakes your palate as the wine makes room for the spicy finish. T...

  • Galil Cabernet 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Take into account the price tag for this wine (under $25 in most of the shops I have found it... see Skyview Wines in Riverdale NY for great deals on this and the Yiron Syrah as well), and I would say it is the best all around value for a great, medium to full-bodied, Bordeaux blend with a great range of berry and oak. The finish is terrific, bu... Read More
