Archaeologists in Israel have discovered a 1,500-year-old wine plant.
The largest factory found in Yvonne, south of Tel Aviv, has five printing presses. It dates back to the Byzantine era. He is estimated to have produced two million liters of wine annually.
He exported wine to the Mediterranean after a complex production process.
Workers at the discovery site were amazed at its size.
Plans are afoot to build the complex to attract visitors once the restoration and conservation work is completed.
In addition to the five mills over one square kilometer, the factory also includes warehouses for aging and wine bottles and stoves for making jars for storing it.
This product was known as Gaza and Ashkelon wine, referring to the ports exported to Europe, North Africa and Asia Minor.
It gained a good reputation for its quality throughout the Mediterranean region, and at the time wine was the main beverage for many.
John Seligman, one of the supervisors of the excavation, said alcohol was “an important food source, and a safe drink, because the water is often polluted.”
