The winery, established in 2005 and totally owned by the kibbutz, produces 10 different wines divided in four series with an annual output of 60,000 bottles. 60% of the production is exported abroad.
The winery was established as an estate winery basing its entire production on grapes grown in the vineyards of Tzuba that have been productive since1966. The vineyards cover 255 dunams of terra rossa, among rocks and ancient terraces.
The wines are:
- The Fortress (Ha Metsuda) – a premium wine – that is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbeck.
- Varietal wines – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Shiraz
- Dessert wines – Dessert red and Dessert white in the Port wine style.
The proximity of the winery to the vineyards and the variety of grapes allows us to perform many experiments and blends that have resulted in high quality wines in a very short period.
The excellence of our wines, that have received many prizes, derives from the knowhow of our winemakers and of their passion to wine.
Paul Dubb is the winemaker of the winery since 2007.
Paul Dubb, a member of Kibbutz Tzuba, has had a passion for wines since his childhood. He produced his first wines together with his father in South Africa. He was appointed manager of the vineyards of Kibbutz Tzuba in 1966 and he planted the different grapes and nurtured them through their growth and the first harvests. As the manager and winemaker of the winery he combines his deep knowledge of wine growing with his many years of experience in wine making.
