Golan Heights Winery in Katzrin

Israel’s Golan Heights Winery in Katzrin beat out more than 3,500 other wine-makers from more than 30 countries to take home the top prize at Italy's leading international wine competition, affectionately dubbed the “Wine World Cup,” the Gran Vinitaly Special, one of Europe’s top wine events.

 

It was the first time an Israeli wine-maker won the grand prize, although the Golan Heights Winery had previously won Grand Gold Medals at Vinitaly in 2004 and 2006. The 105-member jury included international wine experts and journalists.

 

The Golan Heights Winery's chief winemaker is Victor Schoenfeld. The winning wines are marketed under the Yarden, Gamla and Golan labels.
