Nana Estate Winery

Drink wine in the heart of the Israeli desert. The visitors center is located in the vineyards, surrounded by mountains and blue skies.

About the winery
The vineyard is located in Mitzpe Ramon, in the upper section of the Zin River at an altitude of 800m. The loess soil is rich in minerals, and the vine benefits from the range of extreme temperatures between day and night, which enables gradual and moderate ripening in desert conditions. Eran Raz, known by his nickname, Nana, is a Viticulturist who has transformed Mitzpe Ramon into one of the most desirable areas for obtaining grapes. In 2007, the planting of the vineyard commenced. During that year, approximately 30 dunams of vineyards were planted and currently, the vineyard sprawls over an area of 100 dunams. Our winemaker, Dana Beny, studied wine in Florence Italy and then worked all around the world, from different destinations in Europe to California and South America. Her wines reflect the wide style she absorbed from every country shes been to, but her main view for wine making is the terrior, which in this case is the Israeli desert.

History & Geography
The story of the Nana Winery is deeply rooted in its desert location. It is a story of challenges, dedication, love for the desert, and the common vision of Eran Raz and Niv Ben Yehuda. Eran Raz, known by his nickname, “Nana,” was born instilled with a love for the desert. In 2004, Eran decided together with his wife, Shahar, and family, to leave everything behind and realize a dream of moving to Mitzpe Ramon. In 2007, the planting of the vineyard commenced in the upper section of the Zin River at an altitude of 800m above sea level. During that year, approximately 30 dunams of vineyards were planted, including the Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Syrah, Chardonnay, and Chenin Blanc varieties. The beginning of 2014 was marked by a visit to the vineyard from Niv Ben Yehuda, owner of 3 Corners Winery, which operates in Costa Rica, California, and Israel. Within a few years, their vision transformed into a unique winery on the wine map of Israel.
