Visited with a small tour group. Very friendly owners giving the history of the winery. Sampling of 4 or 5 of their current offerings. A small shop that allows for purchases. For a non wine drinker it was still an interesting visit.

We never went to a winery before, so we didn’t know what to expect. Barak gave us the tour and explanation about their winery and the procedure. We had fun, discovered a new world - and we tasted great wines!

Our tour guide suggested to come to this winery. It’s a very small family owned place. A boutique winery which produces 20000 bottles per year. You will enjoy wines with unique taste and hospitality of the owner. Definitely a winner.
