"Seeing your dream come true for the very first time is one of lifeís great rewards!"
Ė Lenny Recanati

The story of the RECANATI WINERY, a producer of high quality Mediterranean wines, begins with a profound bond with the Land of Israel coupled with a passion for fine wine. With the creation of the winery in 2000, Lenny Recanatiís life-long dream to produce truly world-class wines reached fruition. The Recanati winery is today the sixth largest winery in Israel and its wines can be found in the U.S., the U.K., Germany, France, Italy and Japan.

Owner of the finest private wine collection in Israel, Lenny Recanati is a successful international banker and financier and a member of one of Israelís most prominent families. Prior to making their home in Israel in the early 1900s, Recanatiís ancestors had lived for centuries in Italy, one of the worldís premier sources of fine wines. Consequently, Italy and the U.S. (where Recanati spent a portion of his student years) represent the wineryís first two export markets.

Chief winemaker at Recanati is Gil Shatsberg, a graduate of the U.C. Davis wine program. Formerly a winemaker at Israelís Amphorae and Carmel wineries, Gil brings to Recanati proven expertise in his field, allied to a devotion to artistry and craftsmanship in winemaking.

Located in Israelís Hefer Valley within the Upper Galilee, the newly built Recanati winery obtains its grapes from some of the areaís finest high-altitude vineyards, which enjoy a climate similar to that of Californiaís Napa Valley. Warm days and contrastingly cool nights, together with ideal chalky-gravelly soil conditions and limited rainfall, create an ideal environment in which to nurture these classic varietals.

Recanati wines are certified kosher .
