Margalit Winery is a family owned winery, founded in 1989. Before founding the winery, the owners and winemakers Asaf and Yair Margalit experimented in quality wine making in their backyard for six years, distributing the wines amongst friends with no commercial objective. The 1989 Vintage was the first wine to go public, and that is when Margalit Winery launched, in 1991. Ten years later, when Margalit Winery became known and established, two vineyards were planted in the Upper Galilee and Binyamina, and a third vineyard followed in 2011, nearby Zichron Yaakov. It is an iconic estate being the very first ‘Boutique Winery’ (30000 bottles) and non-kosher.
