The Wines

The major goal in the Yatir Winery is to highlight in its wines the individuality of its region. At the Yatir Winery, the pride of the "Yatir uniqueness" which is expressed in its wines, is due not only to the high altitude in the desert where the grapes are grown, but also to the chalky soil and the dry, hot desert climate with cold nights – this all creating a particularly unique terroir. The winegrowers, together with the winemakers, are dedicated to producing wines of the highest quality, beginning with the choice of specific plots and nurturing of the vines, up until the harvest, fermentation, ageing and bottling. This is all aided by the most sophisticated technology and state of the art equipment. The first wines that were introduced were from the harvest of 2001. The flagship wine of Yatir is the Yatir Forest, and the other series consists of Mt. Amasa (a regional red blend), rosé and four other varietal wines.
