Researchers at the University of Tübingen recently announced the discovery of a winepress in Lebanon dating to the 7th century BC.  The winepress at the Phoenician site of Tell el-Burak had been built into the side of a hill, and was constructed of plaster made from lime and crushed ceramics. Excavations had earlier unearthed a large number of amphoras and evidence of large-scale grape production nearby.  Phoenician wine from the area of Sidon was a sought-after commodity in antiquity and is mentioned in ancient Egyptian texts.  This discovery will help researchers understand Phoenician construction and winemaking techniques.
