Kosher Wine – The Rise and Fall of Manischewitz

If your experience with kosher wine is drinking one too many glasses of Manischewitz at the seder, it might surprise you to hear that the kosher wine business is booming. In fact, you can’t go anywhere in Israel without stumbling over a boutique winery.

While kosher wine was once a bit of a joke, these days it’s winning awards and accolades and even connoisseurs are swigging back bottles of the stuff.
