Quality, delicious, well-priced kosher wine is available to us more so now than ever before – a trend we thankfully don’t see waning anytime soon. Below are the 3 we think would will be perfect on any winter table – kosher or not.
2011 Savia del Sol Rioja, Spain $17.99
An excellent value and a great example of the power and elegance that can come out of Spain. Loaded with black fruit flavors like plum and blackberries and chock-a-block with chocolate, pipe tobacco and cedar. Great with rich dishes like puttanesca or roast lamb.
2011 Arfi Winery ‘Gabriel’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Israel $21.99
Some of the best wine to come out of Israel, especially at this price. Aging in French oak barrels for 8 months leaves a wonderful balance of vitality and softness. Pair with any red meat dish, especially a rich beef stew.
2012 Domaine La Ferrage Cote de Brouilly, France $21.99
A very charming lighter style red wine from the Beaujolais region of France. Silky texture and notes of red cherries and violets. This is a great wine for sipping with cheese and appetizers but would be excellent with roast chicken or salmon.
Each year, there seem to be more and more great Kosher wines to choose from. Just take a look at the Bottles Kosher wine section, and you’ll be impressed by the range and quality of wines available. Here are just a few highlights that we find to be particularly wonderful for Hanukkah and your holiday dinners. Happy Hanukkah!
Terra Vega Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile with extremely soft tannins and a nice note of cherries.
Borgo Reale Chianti is a Classic Italian Chianti with notes of black currant and raspberry with mouth watering acidity that will pair well with red meat.
Cantina Gabriele Pinot Grigio is a crisp and balanced white wine with notes of lemon and lime, perfect for pairing with chicken.
Besides our Kosher wine section, Bottles carries many more beers, spirits, and mixers that are Kosher. A few favorites are Wiser’s Whiskey, Stirrings All Natural Cocktail Mixers, Milagro Tequila, Brooklyn Brewery Chocolate Stout, and many more. Just ask a Bottles staff member for guidance!
