Time to pick a designated driver: More than 300 kosher wines and spirits will be on hand for sampling at this year’s Kosher Food & Wine Experience, the annual extravaganza hosted by distributor Royal Wine.
Among wines making their debut at KWFE 2017, February 13 at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan, are Terra di Seta Assai, the first kosher Gran Selezione Chianti ever to be produced, and Herzog’s limited-edition Generation VIII Cabernet Sauvignon Padis Vineyard Napa Valley 2014.
You can use the wine to wash down the kosher BBQ, sushi, Asian-fusion fare and desserts that will be on offer. (Always a good idea to get a little food in your stomach before the drinking commences.) And if you wish to taste wine like the pros, you’ll avail yourself of the classy spittoon buckets on the tables. That way, you might even remember what you tried…
