Ramat Negev (RN) Winery
A dream come true in the Negev Desert
The very first boutique family-owned winery in the Negev, was created in 1997 by Alon and Nira Zadok. Their dream was to establish a winery with grapes grown in the Negev-Desert. First they planted 2.47 acres of the Cabernet Sauvignon near Kadesh Barnea village, despite the sceptics view that that quality grapes could not grow in the desert. Their first wine production went to market in 2000 and lo and behold, sold out immediately, for the unusual climatic conditions combined with their tender loving care of the vines, turned out to be a big advantage rather than a disadvantage like they had initially thought.
Inspired by this success, they planted an additional 2.47 acres of Merlot and once again they rapidly ran out of stock. Litlle by little Alon planted larger and larger crops and produced larger quantities of wine. His wine’s resounding success convinced his family to join in and launch the Kadesh Barnea Winery. But they didn’t want to be just another home-grown winery; they had greater aspirations. So the couple send their eldest son, Yogev and his wife Eden off to study the secrets of winemaking in Italy. The young couple put their noses to the grindstone, and did a 3-year course in wine technology in Florence, Italy, and upon their return applied their knowledge to the burgeoning family enterprise. With such valuable input and such enthusiasm it is hardly surprising that the enterprise grew steadily.
Over time Kadesh Barnea winery has branched out to a larger area of land all over the Negev, and is now called Ramat Negev Winery. The family has planted plots of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay grapes as well. The purchase of cutting-edge winemaking equipment has helped create top notch boutique wine that is pleasing palates far and wide.

Ezuz – Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
On the southern side of the Nizana Plain, on the Sinai border, between the rocky desert hills of the Ezuz Stream, there lies an organic olive grove – a green island in the heart of the desert.Love of the desert and of working the land, and the vision of settling the Negev motivated Doron Akiva to settle in Ezuz and plant the organic olive grove on the remnants of an ancient agricultural farm at Ezuz Stream.This desert region boasts a magnificent ancient tradition of desert settlement and agriculture, dating back to the days of the kingdoms of Israel and Judea and through the Nabatean period, a tradition culminating in the Byzantine era.The desert climate, soil and slightly salty water, along with the attention, thought and love with which the olive trees are tended and the oil produced give our oil its high quality aromatic flavor. Esus Organic oil is a members of the Israel Bio Organic Agriculture Association and its strictly Kosher, as well as Kosher for Passover.
