Wine has always been a part of Jewish tradition. The abundance of biblical winepresses discovered in present-day Shiloh attests to this, and is the root of our modern winery. Established in 2005, the winery overlooks the breathtaking Shiloh River and Samarian Hills in what most studies have found to be the most ancient wine terroir in the world. Selecting only the best grapes from this region, we combine state-of-the-art technology with the uncompromising professionalism of winemaker Amichai Luria. The result: wines that sweep awards at international wine competitions and are sought after by connoisseurs around the world.
Amichai Luria always had a passion for making wine. When he first started at Shiloh Winery in 2005, he quickly gained a reputation for quality and professionalism. Under his guidance, Shiloh wines have been awarded gold medals and international recognition at the highest level. Amichai’s ability to work with many different varieties of grapes and styles of wine, while consistently delivering exceptional vintages provides wine lovers with unique blends and extraordinary single varietal wines year after year.
The highest quality wines begin with the best soil and the optimal climate conditions for the vineyard. Fortunately, the cool nights and warm days of the Samarian Hills create an ideal climate for grapes. At an elevation between 650 to 900 meters above sea level, our vineyards are situated in areas that have produced the highest quality of wine grapes since biblical times. The winery keeps expanding the vineyards it sources its grapes from, and we now have over 75 acres of vines.
