Yarden Sauvignon Blanc 2021 Golan Heights Winery
Golan Heights Winery is based in the Galilee, in the town of Katzrin, on the eponymous heights. The first vineyard was planted in 1976, while the winery was built in 1983 at the behest of four kibbutz (collectivist village) and as many moshavim (cooperative communities). Golan Heights Winery immediately distinguished itself by producing fine kosher wines, mostly produced on volcanic soils, strongly linked to tradition: their brands Yarden, Gamla, Golan and Hermon have labels depicting the oil lamp symbolic of the ancient state of Israel. YARDEN is the group’s flagship company: its name originates from the Hebrew translation of the Jordan River. The first wine produced was, in 1984, Sauvignon Blanc. GOLAN is named after the Golan Heights, formed by remote volcanic eruptions. Its wines are produced to satisfy a young, quality-conscious consumer. GAMLA wines are named after an ancient city that went down in history for trying to block the Roman advance toward Jerusalem. HERMON wines owe their name to the mountain massif on the Israel-Syria-Lebanon border, whose highest peak reaches 2,814 m. HERMON wines are complex and structured.
