Kerem Zivon is planted at 700 meters on the northern foothills of mount Meron. The vineyard was planted in 2006 by Ido Sirkin famed cyclist and viticulturist from Kibbutz Zivon. The vineyard is farmed organically and is certified by the Association of Organic Farming. Organic farming is a way of life and looks at the vineyard as a complete ecosystem looking to find a broad ecological balance. As a result, the vines are well balanced and produce succulent and tasty grapes with great color that allow us to produce very special wines
Cabernet Zivon is dark purple and very aromatic the nose is reminiscent of the herbs and spices of the Galilee such as Zatar and Carob, along with liquorice and ripe black cherries.
The grapes were harvested at the end of September, in a particularly warm year. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks using the native yeast from the grapes, after which the wine was transferred in to select French barrels for a further eighteen months of ageing.
