Recently, there has been renewed interest in researching the local grapes of the Holy Land. These varieties produced wine thousands of years ago – in the times of Jesus, the Romans and King David. During the Mameluke and Ottoman periods, wine production was forbidden and so the wine industry suffered a serious setback. Local grape varieties that had been used to make wine gradually became extinct, but those that were tasty survived as food grapes. Recanati Winery is proud to revive the ancient Marawi and Bittuni varieties for wine lovers and connoisseurs in Israel and around the world.
Recanati Winery was established in 2000 by Lenny Recanati and Uri Shaked. Their aim was to create a new winery which would produce original, quality Israeli wine. The winery’s philosophy is to produce local and original wines, wines that will best express the local terroir.
