The Winery

ראשיתו של מרתף היקב שנוכחי, במרתף שנחצב בסלע בשנת 1883.
בתקופת כהונתו של המנהל יוסף נייגו, בשנים 1891-1902, הורחב המבנה והוחל בייצור סוגי יינות מגוונים. היקב פעל לסירוגין עד 1970.
בתקופת "המדינה שבדרך" (שנות ה-40( שימשו אולמות הייצור והמרתפים כבסיס לפעילות ה"הגנה" וכסליק להצפנת נשק. תלמידי בית-הספר הושבעו כאן לחברות ב"הגנה".

The Winery
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 Haganah’s activities and as a slick for weapons encryption. The school’s students were sworn in here as members of the Haganah.
