    Sure, almost every Passover for the last 15 years we have had quality wines. Not surprised that you didn’t like the Carmel wine. I still have horrid memories of Carmel, Mogen David and Manischewitz wines from Passovers of my childhood. It’s almost a wonder that anyone drinks wine after those experiences. I don’t drink as much Israeli as CA kosher wines.
    One last comment. Is it allowable to have a bacon nose in a kosher wine? Bit contradictory nu?

    woohoo! top 202!

    misconstrueded? more better? jeez, did you have too much before the episode?

    “we’ve got show in different area codes”…sounds like the making of a good song, Gary.

    QOTD: yes, I’ve had premium kosher wines over $15- too many to list. some good, some a waste of money and some outstanding. in fact, I drink a lot of kosher wine and love that it is so under-appreciated- more for me and the price stays lower.

    the wine store near me just had that galil on sale for 10 bones! bought the yarden mount hermon red instead.

    thanks for the kosher show, Gary, and get fa’shnikin!

    QOTD: I once had a Kosher Mogen David Blackberry Merlot “wine”, before I got into the real stuff. It was a tasty, refreshing beverage, but I could’ve gotten a similar taste from some good grape juice and a splash or two of cheap vodka. Whatever.

    Yes, I used to work at a wine store where the owners were Jewish and they loved good wine they could drink during their holidays. So yes I have had many good kosher wines and very bad kosher wines.

    Great show. Love it when you showcase things that I and most of the world hasnt tried. QOTD: I have not. Its not something Ive ever thought about. Mostly because when you go to most places they dont have a kosher section, and if the do have any its the Manichevitz. Yes I spelled that wrong. :(
