Eshkolot (Hebrew: אֶשְׁכּוֹלוֹת, lit. Bunches) is a secular Israeli communal settlement in the southern Judaean Mountains of the West Bank. It is located about five kilometers from Lahav, and falls within the jurisdiction of the Har Hebron Regional Council. In 2006, it had a population of 225. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[1]

The village was first established in 1982 as a Nahal settlement. It was turned over to civilians in 1991. The name of the city is taken from the well known vineyards in Hebron.

Some of its residents own lands and farming grapes, olives, figs and pomegranates and even some few dates while others work in other places, in particular Beersheba.[2] There are two local wineries currently being built.
