With 140 years of production and winemaking experience, the Carmel Winery continues to preserve the heritage of winemaking in Israel, integrating their traditions with the promotion of the highest levels of development and innovation. The winery’s main goal is to lead and develop the wine culture in Israel, to create ongoing expertise, and maintain leadership in the world of wine. The use of state-of-the-art and advanced technologies, combined with a longstanding winemaking tradition, is enhanced by its close contact with the many families of vineyard growers. This all leads to the creation of quality, innovative and creative wines – from the moment of the grapes’ harvesting, to the opening of the wine bottle in the consumer’s home.
Carmel Winery caters to many age groups, ranging from wines at affordable prices for every pocket and taste to its outstanding premium wines.
