In the heart of the Galilee Mountains of Israel, nestled in the seductive curves of rolling hills, is a place where time seems to stand still. For thousands of years this land has produced the legendary agricultural riches of the Holy Land. Today, the fullest expression of this history is a breathtaking pomegranate orchard and the pure pomegranate wines of Rimon Winery.

Unlike other pomegranate wine and spirit beverages on the market, Rimon wines are not merely flavored with pomegranates. They are the only wines in the world made exclusively from 100% pomegranate—with no addition of sugar. They are produced from a unique variety of pomegranate specially cultivated by the Nachmias family to have natural sugars equivalent to that of grape varieties used for winemaking.

Each Rimon wine is produced using traditional winemaking techniques, which also preserves the pomegranate's succulent flavors and healthful attributes. The result is a collection of beautiful wines that attract the eye with superb clarity and rich color and warm the heart with remarkable and unique flavors. All Rimon wines are produced according to the highest quality winemaking standards and all are certified Kosher.

The pomegranate fruit for this wine was harvested at the peak of ripeness (24-26 brix), resulting in a full-flavored, soft, harmonious wine. Its natural sweetness is retained by interrupting the fermentation process with the addition of a quantity of alcohol (also produced naturally from pomegranates). The fermentation process is done in a low temperature to preserve the health benefits and it is then aged for ten months in French oak barrels to give the wine depth, roundness and a remarkable taste and color.
Tasting Notes:
This is a sweet, yet light wine, with fruity aromas and bright cherry flavors. Notes of chocolate and lush pomegranate flavors linger on the finish. It can be served alone or paired with desserts and soft, ripe cheeses. Serve chilled at about 55 - 62° F.

PubMed June 2007: Pomegranate Wine Has Greater Protection Capacity Than Red Wine 

In addition to exceptional clarity, rich color and a distinctive and appealing flavor, Rimon Winery wines also have a hidden bonus: a wealth of vitamins and healing properties.

Long recognized for their healthful properties, pomegranates contain vitamins A, B, and C, iron, calcium and other essential minerals. They are also rich in antioxidants, which are beneficial for blood circulation, and to the heart. Thus, pomegranates are effective in helping to prevent heart disease and arteriosclerosis, and in easing inflammatory conditions.

According to research recently conducted on pomegranate juice and seed oil by the University of California and the Technion Institute of Technology in Israel, pomegranates neutralize free radicals three times more than green tea or red wine. According to the study, “If consumed daily over a long period of time, the powerful antioxidants in pomegranates may help to combat cancer and may also prevent hardening of the arteries.”
