The winepress comprised a trapezoidal treading floor (L100; Fig. 3) and a collecting vat (L101; Fig. 4). The treading floor sloped steeply toward the east, where it narrowed into a deeply cut channel that connected it to the collecting vat. Due to the natural shape of the rock, the sides of both the treading floor and the collecting vat are of variable heights. The corners of the treading floor are rounded and parts of the winepress are eroded. The deep channel between the treading floor and the collecting vat might have been a perforation in the rock—an indicative feature of the Ta‘anakh winepress, dating to the Middle Bronze Age (‘Atiqot 34:195–197).
The cupmarks vary in size and depth; one of them is cut by the treading floor (L102; Fig. 5) and was apparently in use prior to the winepress. The location of the cupmarks shows no obvious connection to the winepress.
A rock-cut platform is located north of the winepress (L106; Fig. 6). Its northern and eastern sides are badly eroded and its southern side is cut by the treading floor. This platform could be the treading floor of an earlier winepress, whose collection vat should be found in the same location as the later one, possibly higher.
The rounded features of the excavated winepress point to a Bronze Age date; its resemblance to the Ta‘anakh winepress allows dating it to the Middle Bronze Age. At least one of the cupmarks and the rock-cut platform must be earlier and the possibility that the rock-cut platform was the treading floor of an earlier winepress can not be ruled out.
