It's time to pick-up your Kosher wines for Hanukkah! Kosher wine is produced according to Judaism’s religious law, specifically, Jewish dietary laws (kashrut). We are privileged to work with the Jewish community throughout the year catering many Jewish organization functions, special Temple events and many weddings offering a Kosher menu, so it is our pleasure to offer several Kosher wines available for retail purchase from our local wine and spirits shop, Michael’s Wine Cellar. Michael's Wine Cellar is currently offering the following Kosher wines: Chardonnay "Kosher", Alfasi, Valle Del Maule, CL, 2012 $9.95 Tasting Notes: Dry, crisp, and well-balanced with hints of apple and pear. Cabernet Sauvignon “Kosher”, Alfasi, Valle Del Maule, CL, 2013 $9.95 Tasting Notes: Full-bodied with flavors and aromas of dark berry and cherry and well integrated oak. Alfasi is produced by Chilean winemaker Héctor Saldivia. Héctor and his team have achieved several goals in the grape-producing and oenological areas. Their achievements range from obtaining over a thousand planted hectares and developing new wine production lines, to the introduction of new wine making techniques while consolidating the existing techniques. One of the main concerns and responsibilities that Alfasi has as a company is to care for the environment for the future generations. The vineyard is involved in knowing and resolving issues regarding global warming. It is for this reason that Alfasi has taken considerations in the matter and is working to neutralize its carbon dioxide emissions involved in wine transportation by purchasing carbon assets (carbon points) from the specialized environmental company, First Climate Alfasi wines are certified Kosher.
