Shiloh Winery - Ancient Roots, Modern Winery.
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.
Quality grapes and wine production have been associated with the Shiloh region for thousands of years. When Jacob blesses Joseph, he says: "From the God of your father will be your help, and the Almighty will bless you, blessings from the heavens above, blessings from the deeps that lie beneath…” (Genesis 49:25). With this enduring blessing in mind, the unspoiled landscape all around, and an immeasurable love of the land, entrepreneur Dr. Mayer Chomer could not resist founding the Shiloh Winery in this region.
The bull is the symbol of the tribe of Joseph. With its strength and passion for leadership, as well as its humility and dedication to hard work, the bull represents an integral part of the essence of Joseph and Shiloh. It symbolizes our history, our wines, and our commitment to create for the future with the utmost respect for our past. “His glory is like the first-born of his bull, and his horns are like the horns of the wild ox…” (Deuteronomy 33:17).
Three thousand years ago, King David wrote: “Wine gladdens the heart of Man” (Psalms 104:15). To this day, whether welcoming the Sabbath or bidding it farewell, celebrating holidays or special occasions, or elevating a simple meal with a touch of class, there will always be wine in the Jewish home. In ancient times, the Land of Israel's agricultural success provided its residents and the Jews of the Diaspora with wine. The Shiloh Winery team takes great pleasure in shipping its high quality wines from this unique region, to Jewish families and communities all over the world.
