Galil Mountain Winery sits in a breathtaking spot atop the Upper Galilee mountain range and is committed to revitalizing the region's rich history of winemaking that started thousands of years ago. The winery is part of a partnership with another top wine estate in the region, Golan Heights. The combination of high-elevation vineyards, stony soil profile, and climate here are ideal for the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon for an expression that is both classic in its typicity, and also carries a sense of the place from which it comes. Kosher
A kosher wine is one made under the direct supervision of a Sabbath-observant Jew from the time the grapes are crushed until the wine is bottled. Any fining agents used must be kosher. Kosher for Passover means the wine must also have been kept free from contact with grains. Kosher wines can further be labeled as Mevushal
Mevushal is an additional level of Kosher wine which indicates that the wine has been pasteurized or flash-pasteurized and does not need to be opened and served by a Sabbath-observant Jew.
Non-mevushal means that while the wine is Kosher, it has not been pasteurized, and according to Jewish law must be opened and served only by a Sabbath-observant Jew.
for Passover (non-mevushal), Sustainable
