The Region

Dalton Winery is located in an exclusive area of the Upper Galilee (Merom Hagalil). The vineyards of Kerem Ben Zimra reach an altitude of between 800 - 900 meters above sea level. The combination of high altitudes and volcanic plateau create optimum soil conditions and a unique climate that are ideal for growing grapes in Israel. The cold winters and hot summer days with cool summer nights allow for essential dormant periods during the winter and a steady maturing rate in the summer to produce the best grapes for excellent wines. Dalton Winery is the only winery situated in this area, and is one of the only wineries in Israel located minutes from all its vineyards. This allows them to monitor the vines throughout the year resulting in kosher wines that are as pure as it can be.
