The Asaf Winery has been growing grapes since 1990 and are making wine since 1997. The winery sits on 15 acres of land that has been divided into 6 plots. Each one effects the taste and aroma of the final product.
Most of the vineyards grow 550 meters above sea level. One of the plots is further north and is 900 meters above sea level, and snow falls therein in the winter. The vineyards are all cared for by Asaf Kedem. The bounty of each harvest is kept separate, and undergoes the fermentation process separately too, so as to maintain the traits of each one.
They use stainless steel tanks and modern equipment including bottle-filling machines, juicers and label makers. In addition, there is an advanced laboratory used to monitor the wine throughout the entire wine making process. In the cellar, the wine ages and takes on amazing aromas and taste. We believe that the quality of the wine begins with the process in the vineyards.
The way they are grown, the elevation, climate, and terroir- each has its effect on the quality of the grapes. Further more, the wine production is done with love, through knowledge and experience. This is the secret of the magic of Asaf Wines.
