Producing a fine Pinot Noir requires an exact balance of warm days and cool nights. We have found this balance in our vineyard at Mitzpah Ramon in the high desert. The wine is marked by soft, yet palpable tannin, with a fresh almost strawberry aroma with hints of black cherries and mint.
Barkan Winery was founded in 1990 by Yair Lerner and Shmuel Boxer. They immediately set forth on a program of modernization and the planting of vineyards in and around Barkan, which they saw as the key to the production of fine wine and expansion of the company. In 2000, a state-of-the-art, modern winery was built in Kibbutz Hulda. This location was chosen because for its proximity to the vineyards of Hulda as well as its central location, close to major roads and removed from urban areas.
