About the Winery

Just a short, 30-minute drive from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem is a wine lovers’ paradise in the heart of the verdant and rich nature known as “The Tuscany of Israel” – lies Barkan Winery visitors center. The winery, the largest in Israel, was founded in the late 19th century and has been following the same principle: quality grapes. Throughout the years, quality varieties were imported and planted in the thousands of acres of the winery's vineyards, each variety planted in the most suitable growing region for it to flourish.

The wide vineyard layout yields an assortment of quality grapes and enables the best overview of the Israeli terroir.


Barkan’s impressive and prestigious visitors center was built in Kibbutz Hulda in 2000. 500 acres of vineyards of different grape varieties, immediately enveloping you in wonderful sights, smells and sounds – offering an experience like no other.


Barkan Winery is equipped with the world’s most advanced means of production aiming to minimize our environmental impact.

Thanks to the huge variety of grape varieties and growing areas, supervision by award-winning and world-renowned professionals, advanced fermentation methods and 6,000 oak barrels, Barkan Winery is truly a “wine lovers' paradise".


And the result? A quality, unique, delicious, Israeli wine.

It is not without reason that Barkan Winery is the most highly decorated Israeli winery in international wine competitions. Over the years, the winery won over 500 medals in prestigious wine competitions.
