45% Cabernet, 45% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot. The grapes of this colorful Bordeaux blend were all grown on the estate vineyards of Har Grizim. The wine was aged with French Oak for 12 months and boasts a deep Bordeaux color, offering tastes of blackberries and cherries with aromas of Oak and a delicate, sweet finish.
|Har Bracha, translating to English as Mount Blessing, is mentioned in the Bible on which half of the twelve tribes of Israel ascended in order to pronounce blessings. Har Bracha Winery is an estate winery that rebuilds a tradition in a place that historically was fruitful but has been barren for close to 2000 years. The winery returns to Israel’s heartland, planting vineyards on a high-ridged mountain at an elevation of 840 meters (2,755 ft.) above sea level, with a 360 degree, breathtaking panoramic view of the Shomron region.
In 2007, Har Bracha Winery was established due to increasing demand for its grapes. As more and more people tasted the wines produced from these grapes, there simply was not enough to go around. The winery began with producing 3000 bottles, aged in fine new oak barrels of the French Radoux cooperage and has continued exclusively with French oak.
Currently, production is 10,000 bottles per vintage and is steadily growing.
