Our Terroir:

Arfi Winery  is located in one of those wild and natural places that produce great strength and great beauty for exceptional wines.

Driving through Israel’s Judean Hills is a bit like driving through Tuscany or Napa. Vines line the hills on each side of the winding road, and wineries are set among the forested rolling landscape, spotted with wildflowers. Just 25 miles from the Mediterranean Sea, the Judean Hills has a more moderate Mediterranean climate than that of northern Israel, remaining green even in the heat of the summer.

With a winemaking history that goes back 5,000 years, the Judean Hills is undergoing a revitalization, after serving for many years only to support the demand for sacramental wine (source: winespectator.com, September 2010)
