Special To The Jewish Week
At one time the two-word phrase “kosher wine” was synonymous with the sweet, sacramental wines that were found in Jewish homes everywhere. Then in the late 1970s, a handful of wineries in Israel, Europe and California started producing minute quantities of quality kosher table wines, and so began the kosher wine revolution.
Today that revolution is still going strong, and the number and quality of kosher wines continue to rise. In the last decade alone, more than 200 kosher wine producers have opened all over the world, from Cyprus to Soho.
Looking for great wines for the Passover seder? The best kosher wines sorted by price? The best from Israel? You'll find all that and more in the Jewish Week's inaugural list of top kosher wines.
The Jewish Week's first Kosher Wine Guide features articles about an up-and-coming Israeli winemaker, a four-hour scramble to taste 170 wines, and tips on what wines to serve during the Passover seder.
