Bahat Winery – A boutique winery at Kibbutz Ein Zivan
The winery is strictly kosher [Mehadrin] and located in the Golan Heights
The Bahat Winery is a family boutique winery in Kibbutz Ein Zivan in the northern Golan Heights.
Ofer Bahat, an expert on fruit preservation and cooling, had dreamed for decades of making his own wine. He made his winemaking debut employing the simplest means: a storeroom near his home, using barrels, pails and equipment borrowed from friends. He selected grapes from a quality source: a northern Golan Heights variety that grows to a height of 1000 meters and world renowned for its quality and flavor.
After gaining hands-on experience and learning from the best experts in the field, Ofer decided to open the winery and visitor center to the general public and share his great love of wine.
Today, some 10,000 bottles are produced in the Bahat Winery each year from grapes harvested in the Kuneitra Valley and at the foot of Mount Bental in the northern Golan Heights, 1000 meters above sea level. The winery’s wines are sold exclusively on location and are not marketed elsewhere, though home delivery is available.
In addition to wine, Bahat Winery also produces several varieties of liquor including cherry and blueberry, the fruit of which is grown in nearby orchards.
