The Best Kosher Wines for Every Occasion

As with organic wines, it would be nearly impossible to know if a bottle is kosher simply by drinking it. The best way to discover the difference between kosher and non-kosher wines is by reading the label. This is often indicated simply with a 'K' symbol. In order for a wine to be kosher, no non-kosher animal products can be used in the making of the wine and it must be made in a facility that is kept entirely kosher. There are a few other strict laws but none that would really affect the quality of the wine. Bottles labeled "Kosher for Passover" are made under even stricter conditions and often bear a letter 'P' next to the 'K' symbol. For those attending a Passover Seder, note that all wines labeled "Kosher for Passover" are Kosher, but not all kosher wines are Kosher for Passover. One should also beware that not all wines made in Israel are kosher. All in all, the steps taken to make a wine kosher are not dissimilar to the steps any winemaker would take to ensure a high-quality wine.
