Uniting the best of tradition and technology, the winery’s vineyards have been the first to be certified sustainable internationally under the rigorous and renowned LODI RULES program.
Yarden is the Hebrew for Jordan River, which bisects the Golan Heights from the Galilee. The label features a symbol of ancient Israel: an oil lamp decorated with mosaic tile.
