Located in a quiet rural setting within the western Galilee of Israel, only a ten-minute ride from the historical town of Acco, with its medieval and Ottoman old city, fishing harbor and traditional market, and the modern resort town of Nahariya, the site of Tel Kabri has the oldest and largest wine cellar yet discovered from the ancient Near East as well as what may be the earliest-known Western art yet found in the eastern Mediterranean. Today the tell and its surroundings are agricultural lands, with lush plantations of bananas and avocados overlying the ancient remains.
