Somek Estate Winery
The winery was established in 2002 and it produces approximately 10,000 bottles annually. The grapes are from the winery’s vineyards in the Nadiv Valley in the foothills of Zichron Ya’akov. The wine is made from the Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Chardonnay and Semillon varieties. The winery offers a 45 minute long guided tour to individuals and groups, which includes an explanation about the vineyards, their location, the grape varieties and vineyard care. Visitors will also hear about the wine production processes and how they are adapted to the winery’s old world philosophy, visit the winery’s wine barrel room and enjoy wine tasting. The winery also arranges guided tours to the vineyards, according to the season, by prior arrangement. In spring, the tour discusses blossoming, thinning out the young vine branches, and an explanation of vineyard care this season. During the period preceding the grape harvest, the tour offers an explanation of the various varieties and grape tasting in the vineyard. During the winter, visitors can participate in the pruning. Private events can be held here for up to 50 participants.
Friday and Saturday: 08:00 – 20:00 Weekdays by prior arrangement.
