With all the focus on Israeli wines, it is all too easy to lose sight of the fact that there are fantastic kosher wine wines to be found domestically, especially in California. Indeed, quality kosher wines have been produced in California for over 30 years, and continue to thrive.

Kosher wine in America is a multimillion-dollar business (upwards of $28 million, according to estimates made several years ago), and every year brings changes — new wines, new vintages, new varietals, new regions, and sometimes new producers. Keeping track of what’s hot and what’s not can be confusing.

Kosher wine aficionados are probably familiar with the name Jeff Morgan. He started what has become the most successful kosher winery to open in California in the last decade: Covenant Wines. Covenant produces critically acclaimed, top-shelf wines from Napa Valley, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Russian River Chardonnay, and Dry Creek Valley Sauvignon Blanc. 

However, many fans of Covenant Wines may not be aware that Jeff, in collaboration with his wife, Jodie, has written seven cookbooks.
