Eliezer Kahanov came from Europe to Gedera as a pioneer in the early twentieth century and planted his first vineyard.
Legend has it that at the end of that century while he was kneeling and planting a new vineyard, a man approached him and asked: "You are almost a hundred years old, do you think you will harvest the grapes of this vineyard".
Eliezer raised his kind eyes and answered: "If I won't, then my son will.If not my son, my then grandson".
Indeed, Eliezer did not live to harvest the grapes of this vineyard, but his son and grandson did.
And it is they who follow his legacy of knowledge, experience, tradition and love.
