Archaeological excavations conducted at the Herodium National Park over the past year have revealed King Herod's winery. In the warehouses and cellars beneath his famous palace, archaeologists discovered dozens of huge jugs packed into a storage area, as well as 10 huge pits that likely functioned as fermentation tanks. Additionally, dozens of amphorae (large jars) were unearthed which bear inscriptions and seals revealing they were once part of shipments of Italian wine for King Herod. It appears that Herod loved his drink, both importing foreign wine and producing his own on-site at the Herodium.
