Grapes and Vineyards
Moshav Dalton vineyard: From this vineyard we get Syrah and Petit Syrah grapes.
The vineyard is located northeast of the moshav, in a valley facing north towards Mt. Hermon and the Hula Valley.
It is planted on red limestone/basalt soil and is well ventilated.
Sandiani vineyard: Colombard vineyard, planted in Ha’Nadiv Valley, above the bank of Taninim river.
The vineyard is planted on gray limestone paved with flint fragments, and uses rainwater only, with no irrigation.
Um-Tut Vineyard: An old Carignan vineyard, planted in the Shfeya Valley, delineating the Carmel ridge from south.
Planted on red limestone soil, paved with basalt fragments.
Shuni vineyard: A long-standing Carignan vineyard, planted on the bank of Taninim river, near the archeological site of Shuni.
The vineyard is planted in deep, heavy clay soil. This is the first vineyard where we started our little "vineyard revolution" when we decided to restore it, back in the winter of 2014.
We carefully selected varieties of grapes that have been well acclimatized to a relatively hot climate and thus allow us to make local Israeli wines;
wines that expresses us, our culture, and the Israeli climate and geography.
The columbard, a delicate white grape strain with high acidity, is used to produce two wines: Sandiani, our white wine, and Moon-Ways our Orange Wine, a wine we produced by long soaking of the white grapes in their skin.
The Carignan, a variety that was underappreciated in Israel for many years but is now getting its due recognition, is used for our Rosé and two red wines from two old vineyards, Shuni and Um-Tut. These are Mediterranean wines, full of character.
We use the red Syrah, Petit Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for our Moon-A – rich, deep and broad wine.
