These Gewürztraminer grapes come from two wineries in the Gush Etzion region located at an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level. This region turned out to be particularly suitable for growing this unique variety due to its extremely cold and snowy winters. Its west-facing, open land with late afternoon winds allows for a late harvest season from mid to late October. Many wild herbs can be found growing in the surrounding dark soil, giving off their scents of mint and hyssop.
