Har Bracha Winery
The winery was established in 2004 and it produces approximately 10,000 bottles annually. This is an Estate Winery which grows grapes for itself in vineyards on Har Bracha (the biblical Mount Gerizim) at 840 meters above sea level. The wine is produced from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The winery offers tours with explanations of the wine production process and wine tastings. There is an option for a guided tour of the vineyards. In addition, the winery holds tours on a route which includes the Samaritan neighborhood, the Samaritan antiquities and museum, looking out over the biblical Shechem Valley and Joseph’s Tomb. There is also a visitor center and “Bracha al Hahar” restaurant in a wooden hut, which offers kosher lemehadrin menus for groups of 10-80 guests.
Every day, by prior arrangement. Fridays until the commencement of the Sabbath.
