Our Wines

Berenice wines are made with locally grown grapes originating from vineyards around Tiberias. The Winery produces about 10,000 bottles a year, of various kinds. Most grapes are harvested during early October from Upper Galilee and Golan Heights vineyards and are aged in oak barrels for two years. 

The Wine List

The Shiraz grapes are harvested in Moshav Kidmat Zvi  in the Golan Heights. The Shiraz exhibits special tastes that show up in the single wine as well as in the blends. The grapes are harvested at full sugar capacity which turns out to maximum alcohol content in the wine. The wine has full body, a beautiful color and a rich aroma. Some of our blends have 30% Shiraz in them.

Port Style Wine
Port Style Wine is a wine that is from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which originate in Dalton, A kibbutz in the north of Israel. The grapes for this wine are harvested as late as possible. after two days of fermentation clean alcohol is added. The Port has a natural sweetness with a certain soft sourness. The wine is aged for two years in a wood barrel, outside in the Tiberian heat and thus achieves a fine caramelisation. the wine is very sweet and a great delight for sweetness lovers.
Cabernet Sauvignon
The Cabernet Sauvignon is made from grapes harvested from both Dalton & Kidmat Tsvi. The grapes are harvested late in the season and so a high sugar content is present in the grapes. The wine which is produced is rich in aroma, fruity, full of colour & high in alcohol. The wine is aged in American oak barrels. This wine has received many accolades & prizes both from local and international wine aficionados from prestigious wine regions. our Cabernet Sauvignon has received several medals from the "Golden Eshkol" competition.
The Merlot is harvested in Moshav Dalton and at a very early time in the season. For this reason it is not a heavily sugared wine and possesses a high acidic value. the wine is aged for two years in barrels and then another two years in the bottle. in this manner a fine bouquet is achieved.
Sauvignon Blanc
Made from special grapes for white wins. The grapes are harvested in Kidmat Tsvi. The richness of the wine has at times a subtle fruitiness with a hint of citrus or mineral flavour. The wine is ages for a short period in American oak barrels. The wine is filtered and settled in a cold environment in our climate controlled wine room. The low volume of alcoholic content gives the wine a fine sourness
Cabernet Franc
Our Cabernet France is made from grapes harvested from Kidmat Tsvi , a Moshav in the Golan heights of Israel. The wine is aged for two years in American oak barrels. Our cabernet Franc is a relatively gentle wine with a unique flavour, aroma & an appealing blush.
Berenice Winery Blend wine is based mainly on our Cabernet Sauvignon which is made from grapes harvested in Kidmat Tsvi. A combination of our rich Cabernet & Shiraz aromas with an early harvested Merlot gives our Blend wine a unique balanced taste. A very enjoyable experience that you can drink now or let it sit and develop in the bottle with time.
