Several years ago, Professor Ben Ami Bravdo started putting his enormous accumulated store of winemaking know-how into practice. Together with his former student, Professor Oded Shoseyov and his son-in-law Zori Arkin, the son of a veteran vine growing family, he established a boutique winery. The Shoseyov and Arkin families started cultivating wine grapes 130 years ago.
The winery is located at the heart of the vineyards, near the village of Karmei Yosef, allowing the wine production process to begin immediately after the grapes are manually harvested with meticulous care at dawn.
The wine is produced according to the combined expertise and knowledge of Professors Bravdo and Shoseyov, who use the advanced technology that guarantees excellent results.
Karmei Yosef is in the Judean plains and the vines are planted on heavy, rocky limestone, known as being excellent for growing high quality wine grapes since the time of Solomon’s kingdom. Over the years and with the rising awareness of the importance of grape quality in wine production, varieties were enhanced and agricultural methods developed to ensure the supply of fine wine grapes.
The 250- dunam vineyard contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Chardonnay and
