  • Gamla (Gilgal in the US) Sangiovese 2012 has medium body, great structure and shows a range of fruit scents balanced out with potpourri and spice characters. This enjoyable Mediterranean wine has good acidity structure and is the perfect beverage for the  long summer days.
  • Gamla (Gilgal in the US) Cabernet Merlot 2012 combines cherry, orange zest and berry notes with a hint of fresh herbs. A equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, this complex wine presents medium to heave body with a satisfying flavor.
  • Herman Red 2013 , one of Golan Heights Winery’s most popular and best value wines is wonderfully versatile, pairing equally well with a hamburger fresh from the barbeque or a hearty serving of lasagna. Ready to drink now, the Hermon Red will stay in excellent drinking condition for about 4  years from vintage.
