6th century presses from "holy wine factory" found near Mount Sinai

Egyptian archaeologists have discovered two wine presses dating to the 6th century which are believed to be from a factory which produced holy wine for export to Christians. The presses were found near the 6th century St. Catherine's Monastery on the Sinai Peninsula.

The dig is still active, and experts expect to find more artifacts from the factory. In addition to the two presses, experts have found amphorae and grape seeds.
