This year Ramat Hagolan decided to add Braille labeling on the back of all Mount Hermon red bottles, making them the first winery to cater to the needs of the blind community. KUDOS!!!
Ramat Hagolan’s Mount Hermon Red is sold as the winery’s table wine. It is safe to say that this blend is the most famous wine in Israel, and can be found in most local supermarkets and wine stores. The wine is produced using five red grape varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
