Pelter Winery was founded in 2001 by Nir and Tal Pelter. Returning from Australia upon completion of his oenology and viticulture studies, Tal was charmed by the Australian approach towards wine. He sought to introduce this approach into the Israeli market by producing quality wines at accessible prices, alongside a unique flagship wine series. Producing wines at one of the highest points in Israel offers many advantages: volcanic tuff soil, long cold winters, dry cool summers, a large gap between night and day temperatures, and strong solar radiation. These conditions provide an ideal environment for growing wine grapes with diverse flavors and of high quality. In our visitors center you can taste a variety of our wines and spirits, as well as our homemade goat's milk cheeses (Inbar Koren Pelter) and olive oils (Sam Pelter). In 2012 Matar Winery was created. The wine of Tal Pelter, through a different angle.
