The region of Israel began making wine a good two thousand years before Europe. In 1959 archaeological expeditions uncovered ancient wine cellars preserved at twenty degrees Celsius. Through Roman conquest and Muslim rule, wine reemerged in the early 20th century when Carmel winery concentrated it's vineyards in the costal regions of Shomron and Samson.
