Marsha Winery: Introducing High-Quality Wines in a Developing Wine Region

Marsha Winery: Introducing High-Quality Wines in a Developing Wine Region

Dining travel guide

In a new and developing wine region, Marsha Winery is a kosher family winery producing high quality wines. With its mission to transmit wine culture and introduce new flavors and aromas to Israeli wine, Marsha Winery aims to be the center for the transmission of wine culture.

Near Nahal Govrin, the vineyard, winery, and visitor center are located in “Givaot Yehuda-Tel Marsha.” The coastal plain, the Judean Mountains, and the Lachish region form this region of land. There are limestone hills and low limestones in the area that rise from 30 to 60 meters above sea level, and clay soils mixed with chalk can be found along the rivers and in the plains between them.

In front of us is the creation of a new, unique terroir that produces high-quality, regional wines.

Since the winery is an ESTATE WINERY, and the winery strives to “grow the wine on the vine”, the wines are made exclusively from grapes grown in the vineyard owned by the winery. This way we can guarantee the uniqueness of the flavors and the characteristic aromas obtained from the grapes..

“Tel-Marsha” (the site of the caves of Beit Gobrin), the ancient biblical city mentioned in the Bible, as well as Josephus Flavius as a dominant and busy district city, provides the source of Nahal Gobrin, which passes near the winery. Between the mild clay and the kurkar hills typical of the region, the stream meanders..

The combination of low yields and pruning during all stages of growth, along with the hot summer climate and humid conditions typical of the area, produce intense flavors and aromas in the grapes and wine.

The vineyard and the winery

the wines

“Nahal Gubrin” is a blend of Pinotage and Syrah grapes. The Pinotage variety has proven to be a promising success in the region.

The resulting wine is a complex wine with character, rich in aromas of red fruits, truffles, and herbs.

“Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are crossed in order to create Tel Marsha.

Syrah grapes fermented in open tanks contribute an additional layer of complexity and meaty aromas. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes fermented in tanks were macerated with the skins for another week.

This wine has soft tannins and a solid body, as well as a long aftertaste.

The winery visitor center

We are open on Fridays, as well as by appointment on other days of the week.

Visitors to the visitor center can take a tour of the adjacent vineyards, learn about the winery’s production process, and taste our special wines.

We will be happy to host you in the visitor center or in the beautiful courtyard overlooking the vineyard, with great air, a glass of fine wine, and quality cheeses.

Also, the place is ideal for holding private and prestigious events in a special atmosphere in front of a view of vineyards.

A bit of history…

The winery is located in a land formerly known as “Fields of Palestine”. It was formerly a buffer zone between Judea and Palestine, where Jews and Philistines lived in the city of Erububia alternately during the ancient period. According to the researchers, Tel Tzfit is the biblical city of Gath, where King David fled, behaving like a madman before Acish the king of Gath..

These days, archaeological excavations in the area of Moshav Zarhia where the winery operates (about 200 meters from the winery’s gates) have revealed the remains of an ancient settlement which, according to the findings, dates back to the Byzantine period in the 7th century AD. Moshav Zarhia has an impressive wine cellar measuring approximately 15×15 meters with a mosaic floor and a system for dripping and pooling liquids..
According to ancient maps in the hands of researchers, this is “Tel Romilta”, a Jewish or Byzantine settlement that has not yet been determined.

Zorba, An amazing Pita fastfood stand Netanya

Zorba, An amazing Pita fastfood stand Netanya

A friend highly recommended Zorba's pita, so much so that my stomach was already rumbling from his vivid descriptions. Despite the rainy weather, we rushed over to the Vatikim neighborhood in Netanya where a makeshift parking lot leads to a cluster of food establishments with Zorba's at the center. The small shop had a long line, but it was worth the wait to witness the chef expertly prepare a variety of dishes, including the signature Ontario pita with slow-cooked meat. The pita was a delight to the senses, indulgent and packed with flavor. The combination of tender meat, tahini, cheese salad, amba, chimi'zuri and garlic was masterfully crafted by an artisan who takes pride in satisfying his customers' cravings. It was a dish that reminded me of my mother's home cooking, and I couldn't resist finishing it despite its large portion. Zorba's menu also offers other delicious options such as young chicken, Iraqi kebab, and light liver pita. And if you're feeling adventurous, try the local specialty, the Netanya sponge, which is a must-try. To complete the meal, a shot of ouzo for 5 NIS and some pickles on the side are the perfect companions. In our opinion, Zorba's pita surpasses even the most popular shawarma places in town. It's a warmly recommended culinary experience that shouldn't be missed.
