Under a starry sky, in a tranquil desert, artist and farmer Erez Rota Shishuka established the Rota wine farm in the late summer of 2004. The farm is built on ancient terraces and the remains of an agricultural farm that existed 1500 years ago, which was part of the ancient Spice Route, which connected the Far East via Jordan to the port of Gaza. The farm used to serve as a place of rest, lodging and food, and for agriculture of fruit and vegetables.
Today, organic vineyards are grown for fine wine grapes, and there is a winery that produces quality wine. You can visit and enjoy guided tours in the vineyards, and taste the wines that are unique to the Negev desert.
* You can stay in the farm in a spacious desert tent suitable for groups and families, or in a family accommodation unit, enjoy a desert view between the vineyards, the quiet tranquility of the desert, relax and rest your souls from the rhythm of life.
