Owned by Lenny Recanati, a native of Israel with ancestral roots stretching back to Italy, the winery is the fruit of Lennys life-long dream to produce truly world-class wines.

Formerly a winemaker at Israels Amphorae and Carmel wineries, Gil brings to Recanati proven expertise in his field, allied to a devotion to artistry and craftsmanship in winemaking.
VinificationAfter careful early morning, hand-harvesting in August 2017, grapes used for the Gris de Marselan were destemmed and crushed as whole berries. 10 hours after crushing 100% free-run juice was bled to produce this wine. The juice cold-settled for 3 days at 50ºF and is subsequently fermented for 14 days at approximately 57ºF in stainless steel. The resulting wine rested in bottle an additional 2 months prior to release.
