Benhaim Winery Ltd.
The winery was established in 1998 and it produces approximately 50,000 bottles annually. This is a winery which began in Ramat Hasharon, and, in 2011, moved part of its operation to Kfar Shamai, which looks out over the landscapes of Tzfat and the Meron Mountains bloc. The grapes reach the winery from vineyards planted at the foothills of Mount Meron, about 750 meters above sea level, and the varieties from which the wine is produced are: Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petite Sirah. The wines are kosher lemehadrin, under the supervision of Rabbi Yosef Azran, Bedatz Beit Yosef and the International Kosher Council. The winery set itself the goal of integrating within a lifestyle which espouses preserving the green environment, while refraining from using substances which can cause damage to organic development. The visit to the winery includes a tour on the topic of wine, and the installations of the Yarok Yisraeli agricultural farm. You can also book a vineyard tour and winemaker evenings which include guided tastings.
