The Recanati Winery was founded in 2000 by a group of wine lovers led by Lenny Recanati. Their goal was to create a new winery for the production of Israeli-quality wines at reasonable consumer prices.
The winery is home in the Emek Hefer and is equipped with state-of-the-art winemaking equipment. The most important requirement in the production of quality wines is always the quality of the grapes. dr Pini Sarig, an international viticulture expert, was instrumental in assisting the winery in finding excellent vineyards as well as plots of land with viticulture potential on which to plant new vineyards.
Most of the vineyards from which the winery sources its grapes, are located in the Manara and Kerem Ben-Zimra regions in the Upper Galilee - a high-altitude region with an ideal climate for growing high-quality grapes. Our winemaking process is led by our Principal Winemaker, Gil Shatsberg, a graduate of the Viticulture and Enology program at Davis University of California.
Shatsberg is well known in the Israeli wine-lovers public as the winemaker and founder of "Amphorae", one of Israel's finest boutique wineries. His deep-rooted commitment to realizing the full inherent potential of grapes is instrumental in the success of our wines.
