Psagot Winery

Wineries in Israel

So Psagot Winery is a unique winery located in the Jerusalem mountains, overlooking the primordial landscape of Israel. Their unique story began in a 2,500-year-old cave, where a message from the past was revealed to us in the form of an ancient coin where history and legacy come together. Psagot Winery and its vineyards planted deep in the rocky soil of Benjamin in Israel, is a continuation of wine production dating back thousands of years in an area that is optimal for its quality grapes.

Moreover, the winery was established in 2003 and has been growing steadily ever since. In fact, today the winery produces over 600,000 bottles! That includes 15 different types of quality wines. Over 70% of these wines are exported to over 27 countries and duty free locations around the world. The wines have been entered in prestigious competitions and have won awards and medals of distinction from the international community.



Psagot Winery Has a Unique Story to Tell!

The Psagot winery is located in the northern region of the Jerusalem mountains, an area ripe with awe-inspiring remnants of biblical-era vineyards and wineries. During the vineyard’s construction, an ancient cave from the Hasmonean Dynasty period was discovered, and in it, a coin dating back to the Great Revolt of (66–73 CE). The coin’s front face is stamped with the words “For Freedom of Zion” and adorned with a vine leaf, while the back face reads “Year Two” (to the Revolt), alongside an image of an amphora – an ancient container used for storing wine.

In fact, that coin, according to them, embodies the essence of their story, and its image is born upon a selection of their wines like in the photo above. The coin is a reminder of their deep connection to the Land of Israel and to their ancient biblical roots. As you’ll walk through their vines, you’ll feel you’re walking via biblical lands that echos things past. We know that biblical times had real wine experts; who made the finest wines for the temples of Jerusalem and emperors of Rome as early as two millennia ago.
