    Yatir, Israel
    Yatir Winery Video
    Yatir winery is a small and high quality winery which was founded in 2000 as a joint venture between the grape growers of the area and the Carmel Winery. The winery was built at the foot of the famous Tel Arad archaeological site, which featues ruins of a 3000 year old Canaaninte city and from the later period of Judea. The winery is situated in the north eastern Negev, fulfulling the dream of David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister, of making the desert bloom. However the high altitude, cool climate vineyards of Yatir Forest are only ten minutes away in the southern Judean hills. It is the connection with Judea which encouraged the winery to chose 'The Lion of Judah' as the logo of Yatir Winery. The viticulturists and winemakers of the winery are committed to the highest quality and aim to emphasize the uniqueness of their vineyards through the character and quality of their wines.

    With a rich history of wine production dating back to biblical times, Israel is a part of the cradle of wine civilization. Here, wine was commonly used for religious ceremonies as well as for general consumption. During Roman times, it was a popular export, but during Islamic rule around 1300, production was virtually extinguished. The modern era of Israeli winemaking began in the late 19th century with help from Bordeaux’s Rothschild family. Accordingly, most grapes grown in Israel today are made from native French varieties. Indigenous varieties are all but extinct, though oenologists have made recent attempts to rediscover ancient varieties such as Marawi for commercial wine production.

    In Israel’s Mediterranean climate, humidity and drought can be problematic, concentrating much of the country’s grape growing in the north near Galilee, Samaria near the coast and at higher elevations in the east. The most successful red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, while the best whites are made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Many, though by no means all, Israeli wines are certified Kosher.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended white wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used in white wine blends, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied white wine blend, like Chardonnay, would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
