Harvest time in the Golan Heights

Sukkot, the traditional Autumnal harvest festival, is infused with imagery and ritual celebrating the completed harvest. In modern Israel, Sukkot also falls around the end of the annual vine harvest and amidst the bottling and barrelling of the seasons’ first offerings. As opposed to Europe’s dismal weather which seriously impacted the quantity and quality of its vine harvest, Israel’s harvest is currently well underway and showing promise. The past year brought the blessing of late rains coupled with a balanced summer enabling the ripening of the grapes. Given the variety of the Northern Israel’s undulating landscape, the harvest takes between 14 and 16 weeks with each vineyard plot being harvested at the precise point of ripening.

Israel is a haven for innovators, offering a unique backdrop and plenty of opportunities for small organizations with new ideas who want to make it big. “Being at the head and not the tail” means something different to every person, but the common thread of innovation and ambition acts as the incentive of every Israeli leader in every field.
