Where to buy kosher wine

Made especially according to the religious law of Judaism, kosher wine is grape wine that adheres to Jewish dietary law. The most important element in its production is that only Jews who observe the Sabbath should be involved. In addition, everything used in the winemaking process must be kosher too. Kosher wine is becoming increasingly popular and two of the largest manufacturers are based in the US.

The Grapevine

History
One of the foremost suppliers of kosher wine in the United Kingdom is The Grapevine. It was established in 2006 and sells a range of kosher wines and spirits. It has two branches in London (located at 90 Oldhill Street and 20 Bell Lane) and an online store. It goes by the simple philosophy that it exists because there are too few high quality kosher wines available nowadays. What they supply
The Grapevine supplies wine, sparkling wine, grape juice, spirits, liqueurs and champagnes. It specialises in several gift ideas that are pertinent to the Jewish faith, including for Bar Mitzvah and Chanukah.

Other suppliers

Smithfield Wine
This company which is located at 3, Longacre Street in Manchester, specialises in all types of wines, including kosher wine. It emphasises that kosher wine originally had a poor reputation because it was made mostly from the Concord grape in the US. However, Israel's investment in kosher wine-making as well as the improvement in international winemakers' stock, is paying off with better quality wines. Tesco
Tesco, one of the UK's biggest retailers, announced last year that it was stocking kosher wine for passover. This is a clear sign that supermarkets are taking the increasing popularity of kosher wines seriously. The wine was made exclusively from pomegranates and went into 21 Tesco branches. It was produced by Rimon Winery. Rimon Winery
This winery was responsible for introducing pomegranate wine into the UK for the first time. It was based on the principles of kosher winemaking. No sugar is added and the secret, according to the owners, is that the fruit is planted 3000 feet above sea level, in the Galilee Mountains. The company says that the fruit benefits from the mild climate. It supports the ripening process. Hence, the pomegranates flourish in the basalt-rich soil.
