Soreq Winery is located in the heart of the Soreq Valley, which descends from the Jerusalem mountains to the Judean Plain. This is a green area, rich in forests and round hills, where you can still sense the stories of the Bible. In this area, Samson travelled on his way to meet Delilah and the children of Israel camped on their way to celebrate in Shiloh, Beit El and Jerusalem. Since those days, this area has been a major source of wine. In fact, the origin of the word sorek is from the name of a biblical variety of vines that appears in the blessing of Yaakov Avinu to his son Yehuda: Binding his foal unto the vine (soreq) Genesis 49:11.
The wines of Soreq Winery express qualities that derive from the characteristics of the region, the vineyard and the grapes. These are wines that are endowed with a powerful flavor and a prominent texture that comes from grapes carefully prepared with technology that produces an extraction of rich flavors from the fruit. The grapes are harvested in selected vineyards from four different growing areas, while continually searching for new vineyards with unique and interesting varieties.
The winery is also a wine-making school. Since its establishment, the winery has operated a professional wine-making school, which works to educate and teach the theory of winemaking. The winery operates in collaboration with dozens of wineries and vineyards throughout the length and breadth of Israel, fom the Golan Heights, the Galilee, the Jerusalem Mountains, the Judean Mountains to the South and the Negev.
