It’s All Kosher But The Price

user submitted pictureKosher wines have always enjoyed a healthy cottage industry, but true wine snobs have considered them subpar until now: A little Jewish winery called Covenant in the Napa Valley wants to run with the big dogs with their 2003 kosher Cabernet. Covenant owner Jeff Morgan discusses the challenge of producing a wine that adheres to the mevushal process but doesn’t taste like old socks; a noted wine critic calls the finished product “rich, opulent, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and tasty.”
Covenant Cabernet is “200% kosher,” according to Morgan, but at $85 a bottle—and count four glasses a bottle, four glasses for each person at the seder—we’ll have to stick to the Manischewitz this Passover.
