The Story

Recanati Winery


Recanati Winery

Recanati was founded in 2000 by financier Lenny Recanati, whose family originally came from Italy, and who was therefore immersed in wine culture from a young age, the modern winery is built in the Hefer valley in upper Galilee, with fruit sourced from some old, high altitude vineyards in Manara and the Jezreel valley.

The altitude gives a substantial diurnal temperature difference, making this a perfect place for full-bodied but fresh tasting wines from Mediterranean grape varieties. Under the expert guidance of winemaker Gil Shatsberg, a UC Davis alumni, ably assisted by Ido Lewinsohn, a winemaker with wide experience, including at Sassicaia, the wines have more elegance and finesse than many offerings from this history-steeped area




A noble black grape variety grown particularly in the Northern Rhône where it produces the great red wines of Hermitage, Cote Rôtie and Cornas, and in Australia where it produces wines of startling depth and intensity. Reasonably low yields are a crucial factor for quality as is picking at optimum ripeness. Its heartland, Hermitage and Côte Rôtie, consists of 270 hectares of steeply terraced vineyards producing wines that brim with pepper, spices, tar and black treacle when young. After 5-10 years they become smooth and velvety with pronounced fruit characteristics of damsons, raspberries, blackcurrants and loganberries.

It is now grown extensively in the Southern Rhône where it is blended with Grenache and Mourvèdre to produce the great red wines of Châteauneuf du Pape and Gigondas amongst others. Its spiritual home in Australia is the Barossa Valley, where there are plantings dating as far back as 1860. Australian Shiraz tends to be sweeter than its Northern Rhône counterpart and the best examples are redolent of new leather, dark chocolate, liquorice, and prunes and display a blackcurrant lusciousness.

South African producers such as Eben Sadie are now producing world- class Shiraz wines that represent astonishing value for money.
