Bar-Maor Winery was established by Rami Bar-Maor, who originally studied at the renowned Margalit Winery. Since 2008, he has been winegrowing one of the most intriguing and unique wines of the Israeli wine industry.
Originally Bar-Maor practiced architecture, a field requiring great passion and attention to detail and aesthetics. Bar-Maor worked alongside the famous sculptor Dani Karavan, experiencing how context and aesthetic values come together to create a work of art. His minimalist approach expresses and captures wine that tells a story, a story pure and seductive of a place in time, honoring the balance created by nature.
Relying only on winter rains with no irrigation, in the searing eastern Mediterranean, this practice has confounded the doubters, the roots of the vines having instinctively deepened further into the sub-soil locating water and natural nutrients highly beneficial to the creation of a vine with true expression and personality.
Red Moon 2012 Blend, 85% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Franc. With no irrigation, the vineyards reveal a true and unique expression of the place and year of harvest. Fermented and matured separately in French and American oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling.
