Symbol of the Council for the Preservation of Israeli Heritage Sites
[The other symbols are not recognizable, but it is likely that one of them is the symbol of the city of Rehovot and the other is the symbol of the Society for the Protection of Nature] Rehovot Winery
It was built in 1907 by the "Winepress Syndicate" (Rehovot Vineyards Association) and operated until the summer of 1934. From the winter of 1933, it was operated by the "Yafora" factory - the first citrus factory in the country.
The winery and "Yafora" served as a center for "Haganah" operations in the colony.
In the years 1968-1974, the building was evacuated by "Yafora" and the area was sold to a private construction company. In 1987, the amphorae cellar was restored by the Gazit-Shaham company, at the initiative of the Society for the Protection of Nature, with the assistance and encouragement of the Rehovot Municipality.
"Gan Carmel" (the site’s garden), is named after the "Carmel" company for marketing wines established by members of the "Menucha and Nahala" association, the founders of Rehovot.
