VINEYARSD OF YOSEF SAYADA
At the very heart of the Upper Galilee, on the western slopes of Mount Meron – at the height of 840-890 meters above sea level, you will find the vineyards planted by Yosef Sayada, scion to a farming family. Serving the Lueria winery, they extend over 180 dunam (45 acres). The unique quality of Josef’s vineyard reflects a rare combination of layers of basalt, terra Rosa and chalk in one terrain. The nature of the vineyard's terroir, its high elevation, the well-drained land, the special climate in the region, the advanced water technology, home-made organic compost – all these create excellent conditions for producing qualitative wine grapes.
Yosef Sayada labors intensively, day by day, to bring out the best the vineyard can offer. Several wineries turn to Josef’s vineyard to harvest its wine grapes, to round off their more prestigious wines. The quality of the grapes from Josef’s vineyard is now famous, and wines made from them annually win praise and prizes.
