Barkan Classic Chardonnay- Israel
Varietals: 100% Chardonnay
Barkan was founded in 1990 in the Israeli village of Barkan, by Yair Lerner and Shmuel Boxer. Barkan immediately began to plant vineyards in and around Barkan, and quickly grew to become of the largest in Israel. In 2007, Barkan winery moved to a much larger, state of the art modern facility in Kibbutz Hulda. Located on a 50,000 square meter area, it includes a 12-million-liter tank farm, an automated crushing and fermentation plant, and a 10000 square meter air-conditioned filling and case storage building. Today Barkan receives grapes from vineyards from all the best regions in Israel; such as the Golan Heights, the Upper Galilee and the Lebanese border area, the lower Galilee and Tavor, the Jerusalem mountains, and Israel's south, around Mitzpe Ramon.
