    Dib's, I'd have to do some research to do that! I know there are organic local wines on the market, but not off the top of my head!

    As far as I've read ... there is not much of a difference between organic and "otherwise" wines! icon_wink.gif Certainly not in taste.I understand it is quite hard to do organic wines, because of the many pests (also fertilizers) that vineyards need.

    If I find anything interesting, I'll post.

    At this time I diligently buy organic veggies, and those in my own garden are (triumphantly!!) fully organic!wave.gif

    Interesting read! I think organic wines also count as kosher but I am not all that familiar with kosher laws.


    Any one know?

    As I understand it, any wine that is to be used at passover must be labeled "Kosher for Passover." The elderly people I served when working as a wine consultant usually bought the ultra-sweet grape wine produced, as I recall by Mogen David. Slowly but surely, the younger Jewish people requred some of the more up-to-date wines.For instance, they seemed to love wines like Goose Bay sauvingnon blanc from Marlboro, New Zeland, with its zesty, lemon lime flavors or wines more similar to Dalton Canaan Red - a bordeaux style blend from upper Galilee..Gee I hpoe that helps. I would love to delve deeper into my noes if you need more info.

    Gosh! I forgot the question! icon_eek.gif All organic wines are not kosher.There is a special method of production that makes wine, as other food products, earn the kosher for passover label. As I understand it, Kosher for Passover is allowable for passover, whereas the term "kosher" is not. Organic wines refer to how the grapes were grown as well as how the juice is fined; They are fined through a special type of clay, whereas regular wines are processed through animal products, such as fish guts.
