In the south of the Golan Heights near the village of Natur lies Kanatir vineyard; extending out on 150 dunams and cast over the slopes of Elal stream. The name Kanatir means ‘arch’, a tribute to the stone arches adorning the national heritage site “Ein Kshatot” which adjoins the vineyard and which are found in the elaborate synagogue onsite which dates back to biblical times. Kanatir farm offers wine lovers and guests of all kinds wine experiences which are exciting and unique. Vineyard parties in the summer, luxurious ‘glamping’ for couples or groups and private events tailor made to suit and occasion.
At Kanatir vineyards nature and tradition, man and soil come together. Our expertise is in producing balanced and aromatic single varietal wines which express the unique terroir and culture of the region. The story of Kanatir begins with vision and passion. In 2012 Kobi Yitzhaki founded Kanatir farm out of love for the Golan Heights and its natural beauty. The mountainous backdrop and basalt soil; the chilly winter winds and soft summer sun, and the rich history of the are rooted in biblical times.
Since 2016 with the help of our winemaker Itai Lahat and agronomist David Klas, we produce seven boutique wines from hand harvested grapes grown in different parcels of our vineyard. Our wines express a broad range of flavour; from dry aromatic gewurztraminer and soft, fruity grenache rose to deep and complex petit verdot.
Vivid Red, 2017 – Made from Petit Verdot, the up and coming star grape for Israeli reds, this wine is dense and spicy. Rich in texture and tannin, and balancing black ripe fruit with hints of earth the wine is complex and unique. An impressive expression of the Golan. Light Cape, 2018 – A rarity albeit a promising one. Israeli semillon, as of yet a fringe wine, shines in this crisp yet sumptuous white balancing stony minerality with ripe citrus and melon. Fancy Red, 2017 – Gold prize winner of OIV competition in Argentina, this recent addition to the Israeli wine scene impresses with on of the better syrah wines in Israel today.
