A one,500 year old winery, the size of a modern-day football field has been unearthed in Israel, revealing how vintners met demand for high quality white wine, which was popular throughout the ancient world.
The ancient winery was excavated in the city of Yavne, some 30 kilometers south of Tel Aviv.
According to the Israel Antiquities Authority, the winery was once able to produce about 2 million liters of fine wine a year.
At the excavation site, dozens of wine jugs in a variety of shapes and sizes were also uncovered, and are known as 'Gaza jars', named after the nearby port from which they were shipped abroad.
Such jars have been found all across Europe, showing the high demand for the wine at the time.
