On the sign:
סמל המועצה לשימור אתרי מורשת בישראל
[שאר הסמלים אינם ניתנים לזיהוי, אך סביר שאחד מהם הוא סמל העיר רחובות והשני סמל החברה להגנת הטבע]

היקב של רחובות
ניבנה בשנת 1907, על-ידי, "סינדיקט הגת" (אגודת הכורמים הרחובותית) ופעל עד קיץ 1934. מחורף 1933, הופעל על-ידי בית חרושת "יפאורה" - בית החרושת הראשון בארץ למוצרי פרי הדר.
היקב ו"יפאורה" שימשו מרכז לפעולות ה"הגנה" במושבה.
בשנים 1968-1974, פונה המיבנה על-ידי "יפאורה" והשטח נמכר לחברת בנייה פרטית. בשנת 1987, שוקם מרתף האמפורים על-ידי חברת "גזית-שחם", ביוזמת החברה להגנת הטבע, בסיוע עיריית רחובות ובעידודה.
"גן כרמל" (גן האתר), נקרא על שם חברת "כרמל" לשיווק יינות שהוקמה על-ידי חברי אגודת "מנוחה ונחלה", מייסדי רחובות.
תוכנית השיקום: "עיצובים" - אדריכלות נוף.

Translation of the text on the sign:
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.
Rehabilitation program: "Designs" - landscape architecture.
