The beginning of the present winery cellar, in a rock-hewn cellar in 1883.
During the tenure of the director Joseph Niego, in the years 1891-1902, the building was expanded and production of various types of wines began. The winery operated intermittently until 1970.
During the "State on the Road" period (1940s), the production halls and cellars served as a base for the Haganahs activities and as a slick for weapons encryption. The schools students were sworn in here as members of the Haganah.
