26  On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Blessing—for there they blessed Hashem; that is why that place is called the Valley of Blessing to this day.

 20:26   That place is called the Valley of Blessing to this day

The Gush Etzion Winery

After God miraculously defeats his enemies, Yehoshafat gathers the people together to bless Hashem. The site of this blessing is named ‘the Valley of Blessing,’ or Emek HaBeracha (עמק ברכה) since beracha is the Hebrew word for blessing. Today, this valley is located in the Etzion region, and is surrounded by the Jewish towns of Carmei Tzur, Bat Ayin, Kfar Etzion and Alon Shvut. The land is truly blessed and is known for its fertile soil. The Gush Etzion Winery, located just outside the town of Alon Shvut, has a vineyard in the valley. The grapes grown there are used for their high-end blended red series of wines known as Emek Beracha.
