L’chaim! Israeli winery is a winner

Founded in 1983 and located in Katzrin, Golan Heights wines are marketed under the Yarden, Gamla and Golan labels.

Now, the Israeli wine industry has good reason to tell all those who turn their noses up at the grapes of their labor to, well, put a cork in it. The Golan Heights Winery recently took home the top prize, the Gran Vinitaly Special Award – aka the “Wine World Cup” – which is presented in advance of Italy’s annual Vinitaly wine trade fair, which was held in Verona this week. The award was the first grand prize given to an Israeli winemaker. To win, the winery bested close to 4,000 wines from more than 30 countries.
