Is a teacher,mentor and rabbi. Amichai has always been fascinated by wine, wine making and it’s historical and spiritual significance. After relocating to the Upper Galilee in Israel, a place rich in spiritual tradition, superior terroir and weather conditions for grape growing and winemaking, Amichai searched for a way to combine his love for wine with with the uniqueness of the Upper Galilee.
