Domaine du Castel La Vie Blanc du Castel
In the 1970s, Eli Ben Zaken, an immigrant from Milan to Israel, pursued his dream of working the land and planted the first vineyard in 1988 in a Bordeaux-inspired manner. The vineyard, located near Jerusalem, employed high-density, low-vigour planting. In 1995, after a two-year aging process in French oak barrels, the first 600 bottles of wine, named “Grand Vin,” were released. Encouraged by positive feedback, Eli officially founded the Castel winery, named after the nearby Crusaders’ fortress.
Domaine du Castel La Vie Blanc du Castel is a blend of strains – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and a touch of Gewurztraminer. The wine undergoes a long fermentation period, under cold temperatures and carefully cared for conditions. It is lightly golden in color, refreshing, and offers a rich finish. The wine bears a fruity aroma with a tropical tint and lemony sharpness. The recommended serving temperature is 8 degrees Celsius.
