Environmental Winery In The North

The Harashim Winery is a biodynamic winery, the only one of its kind in the country. The winery prioritizes environmentally friendly and natural production processes in crafting its wines.

The winery operates a wine bar on Fridays. However, the recent war significantly impacted revenues, primarily attributed to a decline in wine sales. The production process involves aging the wine for about two years before it reaches the market, incurring various expenses before generating revenue. This interruption in income adversely affects cash flow, necessitating the need for a loan.

Micro lending, Macro Impact

The  war significantly impacted revenues, primarily attributed to a decline in wine sales. The production process involves aging the wine for about two years before it reaches the market, incurring various expenses before generating revenue. Our bar is located in the north of the country, so it was closed almost all the time.

This interruption in income adversely affects cash flow, necessitating the need for a loan.

My business - My spark

The Harashim Winery stands out as a unique biodynamic establishment, the sole one of its kind in the country. Our commitment to the environment and natural production processes is unparalleled, reflected in every bottle of wine we produce.

Additionally, our winery operates a wine bar on Fridays. What sets us apart is our hands-on approach to every aspect of the winemaking process – from agriculture and oenology to marketing and sales. This comprehensive involvement allows us to maintain a cohesive and quality-focused operation.

Our journey began in 2006, rooted in research and dialogue, as we tirelessly worked to solidify the winery’s path and establish its distinctive approach to agriculture.
