Israel Discover a Family Winery in Zichron Ya'akov Tour & Wine Tasting & Wine Boutique.
Somek is an intimate winery operating according to the ‘Old World’ philosophy.
The Winery makes a point of using only grapes from the family vineyard, cultivated by the family since 1882 in the "Bikaat Hanadiv" area, which results in high quality Estate Wines.
We at Somek believe the "Bikaat Hanadiv valley" has a unique ‘terroir’ receptive to the production of wine grapes of exceptional quality.
Each Somek wine you have uncorked is the end result of a long, labour intensive, enjoyable process where the grapes,sun, soil , winds and rain have come together, guided by meticulous manual intervention and our sheer love of wine.
