Went for wine tastings. We're given four choices of wine to try with explanations.
They also have a nice food menu. Salad was rich and tasty.

Lovely boutique organic winery with some great wines and a fantastic little restaurant with breathtaking views. Had a great light meal here with wine tasting, cheese platter and other small dishes. Prices reasonable. Opposite is a cheese factory and a boutique chocolate shop

The winery has a restaurant where you can order whine tasting. They have a terrace with a nice view. We took antipasti sandwich with ciabatta and cheese. The food was very nice. The wine is not bad. Not something outstanding but Sauvingion Blank is nice. I will recommend visiting it for lunch or dinner. In case you buy several bottles of wine - they reduce wine tasting from your dinner bill.

First of all, The Service was absolutely AWFUL and the products tasted were not worth the bother, On top of this their prices were unreasonable to say the least.
But, then again, this IS Israel and neither professionalism nor minimally acceptable manners have ever been in great supply there.
In my view, this trip was a total waste of time and money!

We were visiting the adjacent Shirat Roim cheese factory and wanted to try some of Lotem's wine and buy a few bottles to take to our hotel for dinner. When we walked in nobody acknowledged out presence as the wait staff were all running around dealing with the diners out on the porch. So we asked for some help and they said someone would be with us in a minute. This happened several times as we finally decided to forego even a small taste of their wine before buying. So we picked out a few wine selections from their offerings and asked to purchase some. So the woman said someone will be right right with you again. Nice to see they have so much business that they don't need us purchasing their wine. I also would've like to have a small taste since I was new to their wine and I especially like Nebbiolo which I saw they produced.
So we remembered that Shirat Roim also sold their wine so we said forget about Lotem and returned to Shirat Roim and bought one bottle from them and planned to buy more bottles later elsewhere.
Unfortunately I needed to write this as it really pissed me off. We are frequent visitors to wineries here in Israel, offer wine tourism in our business, and make our own wines with a group, so I was know what kind of good service a winery should provide and it didn't happen at Lotem.
Much success to them and hope they learn to be a bit more welcoming to customers.

We are always touring people through Israel's amazing Bible sites and, in between, stopping in at the local wineries and pubs to escape the heat.
And Lotem is the perfect ending to a Saturday night in the Galilee. From their balcony they have a stunning view of the valley and, if youre there in time, the sunset.
Knowledgeable and friendly staff will take you through their wines while you enjoy mouth watering cheese and meat.
A nice blend of music in the backround makes it the perfect spot for a couple wanting a quiet, relaxing break from the busy Israeli life.

Took my girlfriend for a romantic birthday treat at the vineyard on a Saturday afternoon. The view is incredible and the place is elegant and pleasant. We took the 50 NIS wine flight (6 wines) which was interesting and wonderful, and had a cheese plate and a .grilled steak The food was very good It could have been a perfect experience if the service was just a bit better. The 3 workers that served the average number of 20 visitors somewhat struggled to get everything under control- as other reviewed mentioned before. We had to wait for almost 30 minutes for our cheese and the overall serving experience was very nice yet slow. Here are a few points to keep in mind for future improvement:

*Don't let us chase you a long time after we finished our glass of wine
*When you charge 75 NIS for a cheese plate, it could have been nice to say a few words about the different types of cheese in it
*Don't let us remind you 4 times that we booked a tour in the winery and we would like to actually do it

That in mind, we will definitely come back, hopefully this time to give it 5 stars!

ביקרתי ביקב עם בת זוגתי לרגל יום הולדתה בשבת אחר הצהריים. המקום מעוצב ואלגנטי עם אופי מיוחד, והנוף משגע. הזמנו סדרת טעימות של 6 יינות (50 ש״ח), פלטת גבינות ובשר על הגריל והיה טעים מאוד. זו היתה יכולה להיות חוויה מושלמת אם השירות היה קצת יותר מתאים למסעדה רצינית ופחות מזכיר קופי שופ בגואה (כפי שציינו הביקורות הקודמות). שלושת העובדים מסבירי הפנים שהגישו במקום התקשו להשתלט על ממוצע 20 הסועדים שהיו במקום וניכרו בלבול ועייפות בהתנהלותם- למשל חיכינו 30 דקות לפלטת גבינות- לא הגיוני. הנה כמה טיפים לשיפור:

*אל תתנו לנו לרדוף אחריכם כשסיימנו את טעימת היין מזמן ואנחנו מחכים לכוס הבאה במשך דקות ארוכות
*אם אתם גובים 75 ש״ח על פלטת גבינות, יהיה נחמד לקבל עליהם הסבר קצרצר במקום לנחש
*אם תיאמנו מראש סיור ביקב, אל תתנו לנו להזכיר לכם 4 פעמים שנשמח לעשות אותו

עם זאת, נשמח לחזור למקום שוב ולתת לו ציון מושלם
