The Ella Valley region is known worldwide as the site of the famous battle between David and Goliath.
However, in ancient times the valley was just as famous for the wines produced in it. The historical tradition of viticulture and winemaking, forgotten for centuries, was revived in the early 1990s thanks to the determination of a handful of visionaries. The establishment of the Ella Valley Winery in 1998 brought back to the area a wine culture that is thousands of years old, combined with the knowledge and tools of the 21st century.
The principles that guided the founders of the winery were to produce excellent wine by taking advantage of the unique benefits and conditions of the region.
The winery is an ESTATE winery, which means a winery that produces premium wines from vineyards that it owns exclusively, while controlling the entire process of growing the grapes and giving significant emphasis to the regional expression – Terroir.
The winery is considered one of the most advanced and of the highest quality in Israel, and produces about 300,000 bottles a year, all of them premium wines.
About 20% of output is exported, mainly to the United States.
