While on my March 2016 trip to Israel, introducing more individuals to the Dig Mount Zion project, I had the pleasure of visiting Ein Karem. This was my third trip to this marvelous settlement, where pottery has been traced back to the Bronze Age. Beyond its treasures of a 1st Century olive press, 1st Century rituals baths, and ancient reservoir/spring, is an ancient winery. Preserved in stone you can see the holes and vats where the grapes were pressed and the juice flowed. Niches are carved ... perhaps for bottles. I was able to dig at this site a few years ago; it is always so lovely to revisit and I look forward to going back to uncover more of what lies beneath.
