Ramat Negev Winery combines different worlds. It can be defined as a combination of the new and old world. The growing and winemaking methods are of the new world, since there is intervention throughout the growing and winemaking processes of the grapevine – we made the growing environment suitable for the grapevine by artificial watering, enriching the land with minerals, fertilizers and all of the necessary elements for the grapevine, by meticulous pruning and using advanced equipment.
However, the wine that is made from the vineyard and its style, are of the old world. Earlier harvesting in order to maintain moderate sugar and alcohol levels and preserve the grapes´ natural acidity.
