Wedding wine, as well as a unique jug, can be bought at a nearby store run by a Christian family for almost a hundred years. The wine is made from a variety of Galilean grapes. That wine is a tart Cahors wine. A jug for the wedding ceremony is placed on the bride’s head. The jug has two spouts. The priest pours wine for the groom from one spout, from another for the bride. The secret of the jug is that it can be filled only through the bottom, and while when you turn the jug, the wine does not pour out. This peculiarity of the vessel is explained by the effect of the inkwell, which was known in ancient Egypt. The miracle is that the double walls of the vessel do not allow the wine to be spilled when the jug is turned over.

A walk through the village of Cana of Galilee will plunge you into the atmosphere of biblical traditions, wedding ceremonies, and Christian miracles. People lived in Cana back in the days of the Egyptian pharaohs; famous pilgrims of the middle ages used to visit here; the Evangelical tradition tells us at the wedding where St. Mary and Jesus were attending, a miracle happened. Two modest churches with a rich history are dedicated to the wonder of water turned into wine. Weddings are held here according to special rites, and everyone can be a witness to the phenomenon of a wedding jug.
