63% Syrah, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot

This Bordeaux-style wine is a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. comes from Western Galilee. A very nice blend of these combined grape characteristics.

The Julia Winery is a small and beautiful boutique winery in the heart of Meiliya which is located in western Galilee in the Northern District of Israel.  The winery is named after Julia, the wife of George Araf, who is an agronomist by profession, and cultivates a small vineyard of 7 dunams of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, west of Iliya and invests in it his soul and love.

The Julia Winery is a family business, producing quality boutique wines from selected grapes grown on our own land and in other Galilee vineyards.
The family vineyard is in the village of Mi’ilya in Western Galillee, on rock-covered slopes in an area of ancient winepresses, and surrounded by olive groves and oak trees.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown on naturally irrigated terra Russo land which is rich in iron. The vineyard is irrigated solely by rainfall, which allows the grapes to ripen fully before they are harvested, thus increasing the percentage of sugar and enhancing the quality of the wine.
The vineyard was established by George Araf, the father of the wine-loving family, and an agronomist with many years of experience.

Today the vineyard produces 11,000 bottles of red and white wines as well as rosé, all from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, and Vinia (from white grapes).
Visiting the winery you will sense the warm, personal touch of the Araf family, and you will always be welcomed into the house with a smile and heartwarming hospitality, and a glass of wine.
