The Hans Sternbach Vineyard
consists of a Winery, an Organic Garden, a Restaurant and a Venue for small Events situated in the farmyard of Gadi Sternbach and Shula Yefet at the village of Giv`at-Yesha`ayahu.
The vineyard, named after Gadi's father, produces annually about 16000 bottles.
About a mile away, down the Hakhlil Valley, lies the Janaba Vineyard. Most of the wine is made from its grapes.
The vineyard has unusually cold nights that contribute to a late ripening of the grapes and to the development of their aroma and color.
3.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon were planted in 1996. In 2010 further areas of Syrah, Petit-Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Marsanne have been planted.

The Winemaker
Gadi Sternbach was born in Jerusalem, raised sheep in the Negev and in Scotland, worked as a cook, guided desert vehicle tours in the Sinai, studied geology and biology, and founded the first company to operate mountaineering and trekking tours in the Sinai.
The wine bug caught him in 1971, which he spent in Britain and in Europe. Since then he drinks wine with awareness to its appearance, aroma and flavor. He learned to produce wine from the books and from practice, trial and error.

The Wine
The winery makes three generic wines:
Janaba Reserve – is made entirely from grapes of the vineyard, ages for one year in new barrels and one in used ones.
Hakhlil valley – is made from grapes of the vineyard, supplemented with grapes from neighbouring vineyards in the Hakhlil valley, ages for one year in used barrels.
The two wines age in bottles for eight months before being launched.
Ella valley – the young ('nouveau') house wine is stored in stainless steel vats fitted with taps, from which it is served in the restaurant and sold to clients, who bring their own containers.
