Psagot Winery

Psagot Winery was founded in the year 2003 by Yaakov and Naama Berg in the settlement of Psagot, 900 meters above sea level, with a modest production of 3,500 bottles and has been continually growing since. Today 11 different types of wine are produced, and in the year 2015 the wine bottle production was up to 250,000 bottles per year, with more than 70% exported to many countries in the world. Psagot Winery has received many awards and medals winning competitions around the world and is being recognized as a producer of high quality wines that are rich with the fragrance of history and yet refined and gentle in ways only modern technology can help achieve. That is the wine Psagot Winery prides itself on offering. The winery is located in the northern Jerusalem Mountains overlooking the Parat River which empties into the Dead Sea, this area has a long history of vineyards and wineries dating back to antiquity. The ancient cave found near the vineyards in Psagot dates back to the Great Revolt (63-73 CE) and was used as a winery. In this cave a coin was found engraved with an amphora on one side and on the other side a grape leaf with the inscription – “For the Freedom of Zion”. The words of the Bible are evident in the quality of the wine and the return of so many Jews and Christians to the area that dates back thousands of years. “You will yet plant vineyards in the mountains of Samaria; the planters will plant and redeem.” (Jeremiah Chapter 31 Verse 4)
