The top US diplomat toured the settlement of Psagot and the nearby Psagot Winery in the Sha'ar Binyamin industrial area near Jerusalem. 

The winery has a blend named in Pompeo's honor, reportedly launched in celebration of Pompeo's declaration that the US would no longer see all Israeli settlements in the West Bank as Illegal, made in 2019.
