Following a tour to the Makhtesh Ramon crater come join us for a taste of the wonderful wines made at the NANA winery near Mitzpe Ramon while listening to NANA the founder telling his story of making award winning unique desert wines.
The high Negev desert area - where Mitzpe Ramon and NANA farm is located is characterized by very low annual precipitation of roughly 70 mm (2.75 inch). Such dry conditions as in Mitzpe Ramon and the desert in general were considered for years inadequate for agricultural use. However, with the work of pioneering idealist people and the help of drip irrigation technology growing crops in the Negev desert was found not only possible but advantageous. Surprising as it may sound, the desert land offers unique advantages for some crops cultivation. Olives and grapes for example can enjoy and benefit from the salinity and significant temperature differences between day and night. The exotic desert conditions actually give rise to unique, tasty, trophy winning wines and olive oils. Nana farm is one example where the desert special harsh conditions were used for extraordinary wine making. Come with us to the beautiful Nana farm where you will meet with the founder of the farm and listen to his story while enjoying the tasty wines and appetizers served.
