You look up and the calendar reads “April.” Seriously? The first quarter of 2016 is over and you’re still undecided on some of your wedding’s specifics – namely, the bar selection? If you have a June or July wedding planned, it is definitely crunch time in terms of nailing everything down. And if you’re planning a kosher wedding, then surely you need to choose the perfect kosher wine.
So what constitutes a kosher wine? A wine is considered to be kosher when it has been prepared under the eye of Jewish males who observe the Sabbath. The ingredients used to make the wine must be kosher, which means they meet the Jewish dietary laws in place.

- Galil Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2009- Out of the red wine options, a cabernet is another popular choice because of its full flavor. This particular kosher wine offers a dry, full bodied flavor that includes hints of herbs and plums.
- Abarbanel Gewurztraminer 2009- A gewürztraminer can either be dry or sweet, depending on the type you choose. This one is on the drier side and offers a medium-bodied flavor for your kosher wedding.
- Barkan Chardonnay 2007- Of your white wine options, a chardonnay is probably one of the most popular because it is smooth to drink. This chardonnay is created by grapes that are grown and picked in the corridor of Jerusalem.
