Inexpensive Kosher Wine?

Posted by Rchlst, Jan 3, 2011.

Hi Everyone!

So i'd like to start drinking only kosher wine but I'm not sure which to get. I've tried a few but haven't had any luck yet and would really appreciate some suggestions.

My husband likes Merlot so if you know of any that cost under say $15 that would be great!

As for me, I'm not sure what I like yet. Something not too dry but also not too sweet...something that's just very drinkable. Under $15 would be nice for me too.

So far I like the bartenura moscato but it seems a little too sweet to drink often or drink with dinner...

Any suggestiosn would be very much appreciated! Thanks,

Hi Rachel-


Welcome to the world of kosher wine.

For Merlot check out Baron Herzog, Barkan Classic or Ben Ami.

If you like things a bit sweeter check out the Jeunesse line of wines.

I love most Israeli wines. (I'm not sure whether mevushal is a concern for you right now, but if it is, be aware that many of the Israeli wines are not mevushal, such as Yarden/Golan Heights wines.) If you're sick of the Bartenura Moscato, Golan makes a great Moscato ( And if you can find the Yarden Muscat, that is excellent. Yarden wines are wonderful, and I really like the Dalton Canaan red wines, though those may not be under $15 or available near you. Goose Bay wines, from New Zealand, and Teal Lake wines, from Australia, are also excellent (and kosher).

These aren't necessarily "inexpensive" kosher wines, though - sorry. But they are some brands I enjoy. What have you tried and not liked?

Manschweitz makes Kosher wine. It is also fairly inexpensive. The flavors we stock are blackberry, and concord. Unfortunately, I'm unable to get a lot of different kosher wines due to the ABC state.  Though I  am trying to get more of a selection to come into the state.
