Gush Etzion Winery
The Gush Etzion Winery story embodies the renewal of ancient Jewish traditions of agriculture and wine-making in the hills of Judea; its purpose is to turn the region into one of the most important and abundant wine regions in Israel and the world. Shraga and Tamar Rozenberg started making wine from blackberries as a hobby not long after they moved to Efrat in 1986. They soon moved on to grapes, and the hobby transformed into a very serious passion. In 1995 the Rozenbergs drew up plans to create a winery at The Gush Etzion junction, partnering with local Kibbutzim to plant vineyards. The first grapes were harvested a year later and today, over 600 dunams of vineyards are planted throughout Gush Etzion with the Winery proudly standing at its center, still run by the Rozenberg family. Meanwhile, the winery has expanded to include a restaurant, a garden and more including an archaeological exhibit teaches about ancient winemaking and its continuities with modern processes. Be sure to stop by the Visitor’s Center for its daily wine tours and tastings.

The Yatir region, located in the southern tip of the Judean Hills, has a rich and fascinating history of wine production. Passersby and onlookers can view the extensive and impressive wine press, a testament to a developed wine industry of over 2500 years, dating back to the first reign of the kings of Judah. A large center of Jewish settlement existed in this region between the periods of the destruction of the Second Temple to the inception of the Islamic period. The livelihood of these early farmers was based mostly on growing and processing grapes and olives. The region was known as one of the finest for growing vines for the purpose of winemaking and from this very region wines were later exported to Egypt, Rome and across Israel.
