The Dabouki vine is an independent Palestinian grape variety that ripened in Shaffa, 15 kilometers southeast of Bethlehem at an altitude of around 800 meters. The grapes were harvested without machines, solely by hand; the use of herbicides was avoided. The wine with a straw yellow color reflects aromas of apricot, grapefruit and jasmine. Good texture, fresh and fruity. Genetic studies a few years ago revealed that this vine is a purely local vine of the Bethlehem region.
Distributed by the Cremisan Monastery, the proceeds go to the school in Bethlehem.
