Manischewitz at Passover? Yes, in an Oy Vey Iz Kir cocktail

At Bon Appétit, we pride ourselves on being a safe space for Manischewitz kosher wine. Our editor in chief praises it. We’ve extolled it for its “sweetness, the full body, the allover oomph” that “allows it to go head to head with [Passover’s] truly ridiculous pairings, like borscht and chicken liver.” But despite our love, the world […]

L’Chaim! Six kosher wines to spruce up your holiday meals

Kosher wine has come a long way, baby. I don’t mean that it has moved beyond Manischewitz to Merlot—that’s yesterday’s news. I’m talking about the kosher-wine market’s glorious expansion beyond the usual suspects—overly oaky Chardonnay and mediocre Merlot—to less-obvious wines of distinction and deliciousness from all over the world. I call such wines “Brave New […]

Kosher Wine Evolves From Cheap To Collectible

Wine holds a special place in many Jewish life and religious traditions, from the celebratory Purim to the weekly Shabbat […]

Passover Wines: Four Minds on Four Wines

After all the cleaning, cooking, table-setting and frantic preparation for the Passover Seder is over, you might think the easiest part of the meal would be opening a bottle of wine. But for some of us, after the Four Questions comes the dreaded fifth . . . “Cabernet or Chardonnay?” We invited four special guests to gather around […]

The Story of ‘The Finest Kosher Wine in America’

Jeff Morgan grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan – before the area required a skirt or kippah. He didn’t have a Bar Mitzvah, nor did not celebrate shabbat and he never kept kosher. But somehow along the way he learned to make what Robert Parker of Wine Spectator fame has said “may […]

Rosh Hashana preparation: Kosher wine enthusiasts develop taste for Israeli wine

Since Rosh Hashana is all about clean slates and fresh starts, perhaps it’s time to give kosher wines another chance. At least, that’s what Aron Ritter, oenophile and founder of the New York-based Kosher Wine Society, says about the wines with a reputation for plonky sweetness and the Jewish new year (which this year begins […]
