Our Vineyards | Psagot Winery

Our vineyards are planted upon the harsh, chalky terraces of the Binyamin region. It is a well-known fact in the wine world that wine quality comes down to the vineyards, where grapes are grown cultivated to the highest standards. Our vines may not have it easy, but the high mountains of the Binyamin and Samaria regions – ranging between 700 and 900 meters above sea level – coupled with the unique climate and soil conditions, guarantee a prime terroir for producing high-quality fruit. Our crops are harvested by hand, and our vineyards are cared for with utmost diligence. That is how we are able to obtain only the finest grapes for our wines.

The quality of the grapes in the Psagot vineyard is truly remarkable, and they are used to create our most robust and aromatic wines. The vineyard is planted upon ancient chalk terraces. Individual shafts were drilled for each and every seedling to facilitate the transplantation process. The vine roots penetrate the rock and are rarely irrigated, which enhances the quality of the grapes
and helps us create richer, more complex wines, such as our signature single-vineyard wine, harvested exclusively from the Psagot vineyard. The low crop yield of roughly 600 kg per decare, the high altitude at 900 meters above sea level, and the snow that covers the vineyard during the winter provide unparalleled conditions for our Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah varieties.

The vineyard covers the eastern slope of a 750-meter-tall mountain, and faces west. The rocky soil yields high-quality fruit. Varieties cultivated in this vineyard include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Syrah, and Gewürztraminer.

The vineyard is located in the Mata village, on the western slope of the Gush Etzion range in the Judean Mountains. At an altitude of 625 meters above sea level, this vineyard particularly welcoming for our Viognier, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc varieties.
