Kosher Wines To Try for Rosh Hashanah 2021

Celebrate this New Year with one (or more) of these kosher wines. While some may think a wine is kosher simply when it’s blessed by a Rabbi, it really encompasses the entire wine making process. The purity guidelines, which are enacted and supervised by a Rabbi and handled by Sabbath-observant Jews, follow the grapes through the winery until the wine is bottled. But is there a taste or quality difference? Nope! Royal Wine Corp., a leading manufacturer, importer and distributor of specialty wine, is giving us a few kosher wine suggestions to enjoy this holiday season.

Herzog Wine Cellars

Limited Edition Chalk Hill Chardonnay 2020, $60

Although California had horrific wildfires, this first release harvest was completed beforehand and thus produced quality fruit that gives the wine a rich and complex flavor. 

Herzog Special Reserve Méthode Champenoise Russian River NV, $60

This is its first high-end Champagne method sparkling wine that’s made from 100% Chardonnay grapes.

Château Malartic 

Lagravière Blanc 2019, $100

As the first kosher cuvée release by the Bordeaux estate, this is a must try.

Terra di Seta 

Chianti Classico Riserva 2016, $35

From one of Europe’s fully kosher wineries, this wine–made from estate-grown sangiovese grapes–is full bodied and quite elegant.
