The winery was established in 2005 and it produces approximately 6000 – 7000 bottles annually. The winery is in one of the isolated farms in Har Hanegev, and is situated on the site where the ruins were unearthed of an 1,500 year old ancient agricultural farm. The vineyard from which the wine grapes are taken is close to the winery and grows grapes on the ancient terraces which remained in the area. The wine is produced from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties. Close to the winery, the farm has guest rooms and a gallery, selling wines and wine products, as well as crafts created in the nearby smithy, and art creations. The guided tours of the winery are suitable for groups, whereas individuals may visit without guidance but free of charge. Groups will enjoy an explanation of the wine production process, stories about the place, and wine tastings. The winery also holds various workshops in the fields of wine, and ecological agriculture.
