A product of the winemakers' extensive knowledge...
In 1999, Professor Ben Ami Bravdo and his former student Professor Oded Shoseyov, both faculty members of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, decided to establish Karmei Yosef Winery that produces BRAVDO wines. Bravdo and Shoseyov’s wealth of knowledge and experience is now translated to the creation of high quality wine.
The vineyards are located at the foot-hills of the majestic village of Karmei Yosef, on the way to Jerusalem. The Shoseyov family began growing grape vines 120 years ago. The cool summer nights and the limestone rich soil at the 50 acre Shoseyov estate are known to have produced fine wine grapes back to the time of Solomon’s kingdom.
