Background Located in Israel's Hefer Valley within the Upper Galilee, the newly built Recanati winery is a showcase winemaking facility, equipped with the most innovative technology available today. It obtains its grapes from some of the area's finest high-altitude vineyards, which enjoy a climate similar to that of California's 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. Owned by Lenny Recanati, a native of Israel with ancestral roots stretching back to Italy, the winery is the fruit of Lenny's life-long dream to produce truly world-class wines. Chief winemaker is Kobi Arviv, known for his creative work and authentic winemaking philosophy. Arviv's use of ancient and unique techniques, alongside the technological advances of today, raises the quality bar for Israeli wines in the U.S.
Vinification Grapes are dry-farmed (no irrigation) at 750m asl from a very small vineyard of only 0.6 ha from 30-year-old vines. The vineyard has a limestone-clay soil base. Grapes are hand harvested in the early morning. The grapes are purchased from a leased vineyard in Palestine.
