This area was purchased in 1884 by Emil Tzvi Lachman. On the property purchased, Rabbi Aryeh Leib Frumkin (1845-1916) built his two-story house. One wing of the house is designated for the Talmud Torah which he founded and presided over. At the same time, Rabbi Frumkin was one of the farmers who worked on Lachman’s estate.
The stone house and the surrounding wall served as a haven for the residents of the colony during the attacks of the Arabs of the region, in 1886 and 1921. In 1894, the management of the estate was given to Shimon Liebrecht and his son Akiva and they set up a winery.
In 1912, the land and buildings were purchased by Shimon Friedman and his sons. The Friedman family developed the winery named after the Friedman Wineries. The winery provided various wines and beverages to British Army units parked throughout the Middle East. Later, the family operated the winery in partnership with "Tnuva".
The winery’s structure was demolished, and today there is a parking lot, beneath which is still an expansive cellar where wine is stored during its production. There is also the glazed structure, made of kurkar rectangles, which are joined together in "Arab clay" consisting of lime, sand and earth.
