The Annual Grape Festival celebrates the villagers’ efforts to harvest grapes. This is a festival of heritage, preservation and community leadership.
Hebron’s scenic backdrop of rolling hills stretching eastward to the desert provides stunning views of an ancient landscape of grapevines, olive trees, and small villages. The beauty of its countryside is a testament to the fertility and productivity of its soil.
The grape tree is one of the prominent fruit trees of Palestine. The Hebron area is renowned for its delicious grapes of different varieties: the white ones with their sweet juices and the red-black ones with fleshy, firm fruits. The grapes are locally converted into jams, raisins and molasses, their leaves used in a signature Palestinian dish: stuffed grape leaves.
