A commercial wine-making facility, dating to the reign of the Assyrian king, Sennacherib, was discovered in northern Iraq. It is near the site of the ancient irrigation canal with reliefs of King Sargon II, which was discovered in early 2020 (link: https://biblearchaeology.org/current-events-list/4631-reliefs-of-assyrian-king-sargon-ii-unearthed-in-iraq).  Iraqi and Italian archaeologists uncovered the remains of 14 installations that were used to press grapes and extract juice to make wine. The stone basins were carved into the white bedrock and date to the late 8th/early 7th century BC. Sennacherib is infamous in the Bible for his unsuccessful siege of Jerusalem, as recorded in 2 Chronicles 32, 2 Kings 18, and Isaiah 37.
