Born in Zefat, Rosa was an entrepreneur and woman of many talents, who founded the first retail wine bar in Israel. The store, called “Khamra Rosa”, which is Aramaic for “Rosa’s Winery”, was active in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City, at the Cotton Market near the Temple Mount. Under Rosé's management the store prospered and became a magnet for local residents

After a short maceration of keeping the grape juice on its lees, during which the must received a purple hue, the fresh grape juice was separated and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 23 degrees Celsius, in order to preserve the fresh fruit flavors. After the fermentation, the wine was aged in European oak barrels for 10 months. After this period the final blend was conceived emphasizing the velvetiness of the Merlot.
The MERLOT is a red bordeaux shade, with hints of red fruit flavours, mint, oak in the background, cherry and dark berries.
The wine has a soft round body with a nice fruity finish.
