An Israeli winery located in the occupied Syrian Golan. The winery produces, markets and exports wines, and operates a visitor center, an experimental winery and a reproduction plot.
Company headquarters and 96% of its vineyards, including one organic vineyard, are located in the occupied Syrian Golan.
Through the French company, Entav-Enra, Golan wineries functions as a nursery of grapevines for itself and for other Israeli wineries.
The wines of the Golan Heights Winery are labeled as “Made in Israel”. In 2006, consumers complained to Systembolaget, Sweden’s state-owned monopoly alcohol retailer, that this label was misleading, since the Syrian Golan is occupied territory. Systembolaget then changed their label to ‘Made in Israeli-occupied Syrian territories’. After harsh responses from Israeli officials, the wine was relabeled, and is currently sold in Sweden without an indication of origin and under the label of ‘another origin’ (övrigt ursprung).
Golan Brewery, a partially owned (50%) subsidiary of Golan Heights Winery, is also based in Katzerin settlement in the Syrian Golan. The brewery manufactures beer using water from the Salukia Spring in the Golan, exploiting occupied Syrian water resources.
Golan Heights Winery is fully owned by Ramat Golan & Galilee Grapes Agricultural Coop. Soc. Ltd, composed of the Kibbutzim and Moshavim settlements of El-Rom, Ein Zivan, Ortal, Geshur, Alonei Habashan, Ramat Magshimim, Yonatan and Ramot Naftali.
