The winery was founded in 2000 by Lenny Recanati. The winery produces young red and white blends under its Yasmin label, varietals under its Recanati and Reserve labels, and a Special Reserve. All grapes are hand-harvested, two-thirds originating in Recanati’s high-altitude Manara vineyards in the Upper Galilee with which it has contracts, and the remainder from vineyards planted in the clay-rich soil of the Jezreel Valley.
Chief winemaker Gil Shatsberg, a graduate of the U.C. Davis wine program, worked for Amphorae and Carmel wineries before joining Recanati. Shatsberg replaced Lewis Pasco, previously winemaker for Chimney Rock and Marimar Torres in California.
