The wine region of Galilee is a large area encompassing more specific growing areas including Golan Heights, upper Galilee, and Lower Galilee. This is a high elevation location with rocky elevations well over 1500 feet. Wines made here are typically fresh and vibrant. Today, the focus is put more on European varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Southern French red varieties and market-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. (Wine/Appellations)
