Five squares were opened along the planned trench of the pipe, revealing a Byzantine winepress (Figs. 1, 2). Remains of plaster were discerned on the treading floor (5 × 6 m) of the winepress and two flagstones survived in its southwestern corner, whereas the rest of the stones were probably robbed some time later. A millstone in secondary use was in the middle of the treading floor and below it, a ceramic pipe that conveyed liquid to a paved vat (L18; Fig. 3) and to another plastered vat (L21; Fig. 4). A pipe in one of the walls (W106) conveyed liquid to a large storage vat (L19; depth 2 m; Fig. 5). A room with a plaster floor (L13) that probably served as a storehouse was discovered south of the treading floor. It contained numerous fragments of kraters (Fig. 6:1, 2), Gaza jars (Fig. 6:3, 4) and a lamp characteristic of the Byzantine period (Fig. 6:5).
An opening was installed in a wall (W107), through which the wine from broken jars could drain back into an intermediate vat (L21).
Based on the remains of the plaster floor (L22; Fig. 7) and the remains of a corner formed by two walls (W110, W111), other rooms were probably located around the treading floor.
