Clos de Gat is situated in foothills of the Judean Mountains, bordering Israel?s biblical Ayalon Valley, where Joshua defeated the five kings. An ancient ?Gat? (Hebrew for winepress), pre-dating the Roman period, is located in the grounds of the modern winery, set in the heart of the Clos de Gat vineyards, which cover an area of nineteen hectares. The regions rolling hills and valley have supported grapevine cultivation for thousands of years. The combination of thin topsoil on limestone- bedrock, coupled with a microclimate makes it possible to grow grapes of outstanding quality.
