Kosher wine has been around since the days of the Bible, and it’s still popular today. But what exactly is kosher wine, and how is it made? Let’s take a look.

Kosher wine is any wine that has been produced in accordance with Jewish dietary law. This means that the grape must be crushed and fermented by observant Jews, and all of the equipment used in the wine making process must be kosher as well. The wine cannot come into contact with any non-kosher foods or chemicals during production. In order to be certified kosher, a wine must also be produced under rabbinical supervision from start to finish.

One of the most important aspects of making kosher wine is using only kosher ingredients. This means that all of the grapes must be grown and harvested according to Jewish law, and they must be crushed and fermented using only kosher yeast. In addition, any other ingredients that are added to the wine, such as sugar or flavoring agents, must also be kosher.
