    A 1,500-year-old wine-making complex, said to have been the world's largest at the time, has been discovered in Israel, archaeologists say. Five presses were unearthed at the huge Byzantine-era winery at Yavne, south of Tel Aviv, which is estimated to have produced two million litres a year.


    After a sophisticated production process it was exported around the Mediterranean. Those working at the site said they were surprised by its size. There are plans to make the complex a visitor attraction once preservation work is completed.
