A review of the Saslove Aviv Marriage and the Bruichladdich Single Malt “Kosher” Cask along with a free offer from the International Wine Review.
Wine lovers across the Jewish community have long recognized Israel’s wine industry’s accomplishments, and tend to rejoice every time some nonkosher wine critic notices, too. While this cheerleading tribal affinity is both welcome and positive, it also has the perhaps less welcome side effect of contributing to the notion that Israeli wine is strictly a Jewish ethnic interest, undeserving of wine-store shelf space beyond the “kosher” section. Of late, however, there are strong signs that interest in the Israeli wine scene is growing beyond just the Jewish demographic.
