The Recanati Winery was founded in 2000, near Hadera, by a group of wine lovers led by Lenny Recanati, from the Israeli Banking family. Their goal was to create a winery that produces quality Israeli wines at reasonable consumer prices. The winery receives most of its grapes from the Manara and Kerem Ben-Zimra regions in the Upper Galil, a high region with an ideal climate for the cultivation of quality wine grapes. Additional grapes come from the Ella Valley, in the Jerusalem Hills, and the Lower Galil.
Gil Shatsberg, Recanati's chief winemaker, will grace us with his presence and present a wide selection of his creations.
Sit back and relax and join other wine lovers at the Israeli Wine of the Month Club’s interactive wine tasting experience.
